Monastery in Bearsville, NY

I just stumbled upon this site for a monastery about 30-45 min from where I live. It's called Holy Ascension Monastery, in Bearsville, NY.

Has anyone ever been there, or does anyone know about it? I'm mildly confused about whether it's canonical or not, as I know they're celebrating the Nativity of the Theotokos tomorrow, which is the Old Calendar date, but I haven't been able to figure out from this site whether or not this is an Old Calendrist Greek monastery...

Anyone?
It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.

That monastery is part of the Old Calendarist group that the owner of the forum Fr. Anastasios is in.

Ah. Thanks.
