In the summer of 2013, the brotherhood of the Monastery of St. John the Theologian (located in northern Ohio) made the decision to move to Ukraine. As they desired that the monastic life which they had established since the foundation of their brotherhood be continued, with the blessing of Metropolitan Hilarion they transferred possession of their monastery to Holy Cross Monastery in West Virginia. It was reorganized as the Skete of St. John the Theologian, a dependency of Holy Cross. In January of 2020, St John's was officially placed as an independent monastery under the omophor of Archbishop Peter of Chicago and Mid-America, reverting to the status of a monastery rather than a skete.
