First-ever open house at Jordanville Monastery
« on: May 23, 2012, 01:12:24 PM »
In Jordanville, New York, the Holy Trinity monastery held its first open house for visitors. The monastery is located in Herkimer County, and its monks publish a popular prayer book.

From the article:
Quote
According to its website, the monastery was first settled by Fr. Panteleimon. With the help of four new brothers, the progress continued with the construction being completed in 1935. A fire, however, destroyed the buildings later that year during a dedication ceremony and a new monastery was later built.

I love their plans:

"The monastery’s Father Luke greeted the dozens of visitors to the open house and said he hopes they will become more common, with one in the spring and the fall. “This is so that everyone in Herkimer County, New York state and beyond can take advantage of what we have to offer,” he said."

First Hierarch of ROCOR, His Eminence Metropolitan of Eastern America and New York, Hilarion expressed grave concern the critical situation of the Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY. New York - the oldest monastery of the Russian Orthodox Church. Holy Trinity Monastery is facing serious financial difficulties due to the need to repair the monastery, which could cost the monastery of three million dollars.

On Friday, December 14, Metropolitan Hilarion, accompanied by several members of the Eastern American Diocese, met with Orthodox monastery abbot, Archimandrite. Luke (Murianka) in order to find solutions to the problem.
....
To help the monastery Eastern American Diocese plans to informational video about the campaign taking place in the monastery repairs, and the importance of Jordanville for the Church Abroad.

"Today, few people know that in the Holy Trinity Monastery stored particle belt of the Virgin. When brought to Russia Time Virgin, over a million people were more than 12 hours in line to worship him. And this is just one example of relics stored in the monastery" said Thurs Peter Lukyanov.

Council members are hoping that a series of videos on Jordanville not only help raise funds for the monastery, but also attract pilgrims to the monastery.

What a dreadful example of automated translation from Russian to English! That won't encourage people to open their wallets.

Donate to Holy Trinity Monastery. They have a large overhead.
