St. Sabbas Orthodox Monastery

This architectural gem is the  Russian Orthodox  Monastery  ST. SABBAS ,  near Harper Woods, Michigan which was  founded in 1999. The monastery is  situated on approximately six acres which includes the Monastery Katholicon, the library , the Abbot's quarters, the trapeza (restaurant),  gift shop and candle making place. Very soon the gardens will be broken for the artisans' studios. The monastery follows the Julian calendar.
St. Sabbas is surrounded by gardens, fountains, and mosaic shrines, very much in the style of the ancient monasteries of Macedonia, Bulgaria, Greece, Serbia, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, and Romania.
