The first Russian monastery on the continent is to be opened in South America.

It is planned to open the monastery in Argentina on a small plot of land with a house which was donated to local priest Bartholomew (Oviedo), the press service of the Moscow Patriarchate Argentine Diocese reports.

There are several parishioners of the diocese who want to take monastic vows, and at the same time the number of local residents coming to pray in Russian churches is growing.

The Argentine Diocese, founded by Russian emigrants, celebrates its 70th anniversary this year.
