In response to the outbreak of COVID-19, we are now asking visitors to refrain from visiting the St. Herman Monastery in Platina, California, until further notice. We are striving to do our part to keep the virus from spreading, both within our community and outside it.

Within the monastery, life will go on as usual, with daily services according to the Lenten schedule.

We join with our Orthodox brothers and sisters worldwide in praying to our merciful Lord for a speedy end to the current health crisis, asking the intercessions of our Most Holy Lady, the saints and angels, who are our heavenly intercessors.

St. Herman Press is the publishing arm of the St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood, a monastic-missionary Orthodox Christian brotherhood which is part of the Western American Diocese of the Serbian Orthodox Church, under His Grace Maxim, Bishop of Western America.

The St. Herman of Alaska Brotherhood was founded in 1963 with the blessing of St. John Maximovitch, Archbishop and miracle-worker of Shanghai and San Francisco. The Press was founded in 1965 with the intent of making materials about the Orthodox Christian Faith available, primarily to the English-speaking world. Since then St. Herman Press has printed over a hundred titles in English and Russian and has published a bimonthly magazine, The Orthodox Word.
