History:
The Monastery of Ss Nektarius and Nicholas is the first monastery established in the Archbishopric of Johannesburg and Pretoria, of the Republic of South Africa. The monastery is located near the city of Johannesburg. The founding of the Monastery of Ss Nektarius and Nicholas in 2005 fulfilled the plans of the Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and the Metropolitan of Johannesburg and Pretoria to provide a monastic institution in the metropolis that would provide the Orthodox community with a spiritual sanctuary for monks and clergy in South Africa. At a ceremony on December 10, 2006, His Beatitude Theodoros II, Pope and Patriarch of Alexandria and All Africa ordained the first monk in South Africa at the monastery. The monastery provides a home for monks and clergy of the metropolis and to those in the South African community who need a spiritual sanctuary. Plans envision the establishment of a parish, a residential facility, and a program for theological study, practice, and education.
