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.

Our WebStores were originally designed to work primarily on computers and tablets. While it was possible to shop our stores on a smart phone, it didn’t provide as nice of a user experience as we would have liked.
Now, through the grace of God, we have updated our stores to offer mobile users a much nicer experience. When you visit either Dormition Skete or Holy Apostles Convent’s WebStore using a mobile device, it should automatically take you to a mobile friendly page.
If, for some reason, you would prefer to see a non-mobile page, you can switch back and forth between our mobile and normal pages by pressing the appropriate button on either the menu or the footer.
