Holy Annunciation Monastery belongs to the Ruthenian Byzantine Eparchy of Passaic, New Jersey. We follow the Monastic Rule of Saint Benedict (530) and witness to the monasticism of the Great Undivided Church (prior to the Great Schism of 1045.) In Vita Consecrata we hear a summons to work for Church-unity. The Gospels are our foundational principle. We are heirs to the Eastern Tradition of the Desert Fathers, of St. Antony and St. Pachomius, and St. Basil and the monastic Rules of John Cassian and St. Benedict  who brought this Tradition to the West.
