The Hesychastic Society of the Most Holy Mary

Most Holy Mary with Christ

(or Wawasinno Ki’chi Wa Mali’í Waabanowigaan)

from an email directed to me through the group home ministry I work with:

The Hesychastic Society of the Most Holy Mary, aka, Wawasinno Ki’chi Wa Mali’i Waabanowigaan, is a Metochion of the Monastic Society of St. Silouan the Athonite (OCA; Canada): a monastic brotherhood designed specifically for Aboriginal (Native N. American) and (higher functioning) Autistic Orthodox, and those wishing to live with them in Christian harmony. Our rule is simple: radical hesychasm and little folly. We are located, at present, in downtown Toronto, and, as of September 4, 2011, our first hermitage was sanctified, and was granted canonical letters. 

Some very basic online info on the Community:

    Please correct the posting. The Elder of the Society is Elder Pierre (Blais), ThD. There was a temporary glitch in the computer files and the Archdiocese has since made the correction.
