The concept of the monastery was blessed by Archbishop Dmitri of Dallas and the South on November 15, 2000. Organizational difficulties delayed the activation of the monastery until 2009 when Bp Jonah, auxiliary bishop to Abp. Dmitiri, blessed the re-activation of the monastery project in 2009. Later in the year the monastery acquired twelve and a half acres of property with a house in Kemp, Texas.
Renovation of the house began on October 21, 2009. The modifications provided a chapel and a renovated kitchen and living area with two cells and housing facilities. After completion of the renovations, including the chapel, the monastery was blessed by Metr. Jonah on November 28, 2009.
The monastery is supported by the "Monastery Friends" support group.
