ROCOR. Why ROCOR? They have Holy Trinity Monastery with a seminary, Holy Cross in Wayne, Holy Cross Skete in East Setauket, St. Seraphim Convent in Nanuet, St Elizabeth Convent near Jordanville, All-Merciful Saviour in Vashon Island, a monastery in Mexico, a skete in Fridley, MN, and other monasteries around the world. Holy Cross in Wayne and Holy Trinity in Jordanville publish books, periodicals, and have an excellent online presence, as well as great monastics. All the recent ROCOR First Hierarchs and many of the Bishops went through the monastic life, whether in Jordanville or elsewhere. Bishop George of Mayfield was and is to this day the Superior of Holy Cross Monastery in Wayne. He is a quiet and prayerful man, and probably a discerning Hierarch and Superior as well. The publications in Jordanville were especially important for keeping the faith alive in Soviet Russia. Hopefully the other jurisdictions will also strengthen their monasteries and monasticism, that we may have many more holy fathers and mothers praying with us and for us.
