Welcome to the website of Dormition Skete, located in the mountains outside of beautiful Buena Vista, Colorado. We are an Orthodox Christian monastery, living according to the traditions handed down to us by the holy fathers and mothers of the Orthodox Church.
Our monastery is entirely self-supporting. We do not solicit contributions for our continuing existence, although we do greatly appreciate them.
Dormition Skete offers some of the finest icons available in the world. We offer hand-painted panel icons and frescoes, as well as mounted icons. Further, we also produce some of the highest quality incense available, along with many other products relating to the Orthodox Faith.
Holy Apostles Convent, our sister monastery, translates the Holy Scriptures and the Lives of the Saints from the original Greek texts, and publishes them in extraordinarily high quality books. All of the convent publications are lavishly adorned with icons throughout the text for the reader's edification and enjoyment. Please take the time to visit their website, too, at http://www.HolyApostlesConvent.org
Please take some time to explore our website, and we hope you will order some of the fruits of our labors.

The Teachings of the Holy Orthodox Church
After many years of being out of print, our much beloved and requested "The Teachings of the Holy Orthodox Church" is now available once again in a much expanded, revised and improved edition. Originally envisioned many years ago to be a two volume set, this new edition contains both our previously published Volume 1 (revised) and our never before published Volume 2, combined into one comprehensive book. The entire text has been edited and revised by Dormition Skete, and embellished with many icons and illustrations. This is a must for those who would like to learn the Teachings of the Holy Orthodox Church.
