Brothers & Sisters of Mercy

at St. John the Compassionate Mission


“Serving the Table of the Lord and the Tables of the Poor.”

This way of life is open to a lay Orthodox person who desires to live daily a life of community, service to the poor, and prayer. Not all brothers or sisters of Mercy live at the Lourmel House.

If you are interested, please e-mail to Father Nicolaie at info@stjohnsmission.org, or speak with him directly.

You may than be invited to come and spend three months with us to see if this life would be good for you.

If you decide to stay, and the spiritual father agrees, you will be invited to make a one-year public commitment, renewable yearly.

As a Brother/Sister of Mercy, you will have opportunities for theological and biblical study, silent retreats, as well as work in the vineyard of the Lord.


The Brothers and Sisters of Mercy are dedicated to the patronage of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr, who restored such a way of life to the Orthodox Church — a life combining the spirit of both Martha and Mary.
