St. Anthony’s Greek Monastery is located south of Florence, AZ. , located on almost 800 acres of lush gardens, citrus, and olive groves. Founded in 1995 by Gerunda Ephraim after the purchase of desert scrubland to establish a monastery. The nine chapels, main church, refectory, and living quarters have been built into the largest Orthodox monastery in the Western Hemisphere.
