Our History

The Coptic Monastery of Saint Shenouda provides a place where one can fulfill a life of consecration to the Lord for Christian education and community service. While having a fixed prayer schedule alongside personal prayer in their private cell like all monastic communities, each member of this community additionally dedicates their time and energy for their own personal academic studies as well as teaching and serving the community. H.H. Pope Shenouda III, of blessed memory, who laid the cornerstone for this monastery in 2004, blessed this vision and initiative, and H.H. Pope Tawadros II further commissioned the monastery to be a Coptic Orthodox Institute for theological studies. In 2007, with the purchase of Sts. Peter and Paul Church, God also opened a door for us to be involved in community service in the city of Rochester.
