Keeping members and friends of the Order of the Most Holy Mary Theotokos informed.

Our O.SS.T. Website Has a New Look!

During the month of February 2021, we received the following message from Yahoo Small Business who has hosted our O.SS.T. website since its inception in 2009.

"Now is the time to get a modern website.

After March 31, 2021 websites built using SiteBuilder will no longer be editable or supported.

At Yahoo Small Business we are committed to giving business owners the best experiences possible. Websites built using the SiteBuilder tool are unable to deliver the best results for business owners. We have made the difficult decision of ending support for SiteBuilder to focus on our other website tools to keep your business looking good online. Creating a new website can be daunting, so we have put together a number of solutions to help you get a new website built quickly and easily.

SiteBuilder websites will no longer be supported or able to be updated as of March 31, 2021.

You have options

What describes your situation best?

1. My website is fine the way it is and I do not need to make any updates.

2. I would like to make a new business website myself.

3. I would like a team of experts to build my website."

Since from the very beginning it has been our desire to build and maintain our own website, we have collectively decided to choose option number 2.

While we have been quite happy with our old website, and in fact, have received many positive comments for both its appearance and content over the years, and believing that change, merely for the sake of change, is not always in everyone’s best interest, we also regrettably understand that we indeed (as Yahoo stated above) had to undertake the daunting task of creating a whole new website.

For those already familiar with our website, you will find a completely new more streamlined format, containing both something old, and something new. We also eliminated some of the redundant information to help make it easier to navigate around the web site. We hope you will enjoy it!


The "Benedictines of Mary, Old Catholic Marianists" have been dedicated to Our Lady from the very beginning of our Order. She is our life, our sweetness, and our hope.

She is bride, she is Mother, she is Queen, and none of these has passed from the present into mere memory.
