So far, thanks to your generosity, we have collected over $200,000 for Holy Trinity Monastery. $130,000 has already been disbursed.
The First Hierarch of ROCOR, His Eminence Hilarion, Metropolitan of Eastern America & New York, expressed his deep concern over the critical condition in which Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY – the oldest monastery in the Russian Church Abroad – finds itself.
The monastery is in dire need of new wiring in the cathedral, the construction of a new seminary dormitory, construction of a new kitchen, bringing the whole complex into compliance with NYSDEC standards, and replacing all of the plumbing in the monastery building. The pipes are currently in such a deteriorated condition that the monks are unable to use the washing machines, while the seminary dormitory has begun to lean several degrees.
"Every person who is part of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia needs to contribute to help the monastery so that it may be preserved for years and centuries to come," said Metropolitan Hilarion.
Holy Trinity Monastery abbot, Archimandrite Luke (Murianka), sent a note expressing gratitude to all those who donated to the monastery through the FFA. To see the note in Russian, please click here.
