Restoration Work at Holy Trinity Monastery
Help Repair the Icon Studio's Roof - 10/04/16

Dear Supporters of Holy Trinity Monastery,
 
The original roof of the Icon Studio building has finally lost its structural integrity, its wooden frame damaged by the heavy rains and snow of upstate New York. Water is leaking directly into the workshop, and we worry that the roof will not be able to survive the harsh winter conditions that are rapidly approaching. Therefore, we need to raise $36,000 by November 1 for this rebuilding project, and we need your support to achieve this!
 
The current building was built in the 1990s as a new home for the Icon Studio founded by the renowned iconographer, Fr. Kyprian Pyzhov, who was instrumental in returning Russian iconography back to its traditional roots. In this way, he founded the Jordanville style, known for its simplicity and dynamism. With faithfulness to tradition and a distinctive style, Fr. Kyprian's work was highly prized, and he was commissioned to paint murals for cathedrals and churches from Luxembourg to San Francisco. 
 
The popularity of Fr. Kyprian's icons as well as his reputation for living a holy life drew disciples to him who would continue his work. To this day, the Icon Studio is very active with an inventory of approximately 1000 images on file. It acts as both a workshop that produces icons for purchase (both hand painted and mounted prints) and a training center for anyone who wants to learn the craft from master iconographers. 
 
Please help us continue our work and preserve the memory of Fr. Kyprian! May God bless your generosity!

Thank Your for Your Generosity! Apiary Update - 10/03/16

To our generous donors and supporters,

       It is with joy and gratitude that Holy Trinity Monastery can announce the success of our campaign to raise funds for the rebuilding of the apiary that was destroyed by fire. Through your generosity and prayers, we have exceeded the necessary $4,000 for building materials and have raised $4,380! Glory to God!

       The new apiary will help to increase the monastery’s production of honey by giving novice-monk Lev a place near his 15 bee colonies to extract honey and store resources. We have already started buying the essential materials for this project and have been using our in-house staff to raise the structure. The building is in its skeleton phase with a concrete foundation, lumber frame, and insulation in the walls. As we complete it, we will add plywood for the finishing, insulation to the roof, and silicon to patch leaks in the roof. We will update you when the building is finished!  In fact, the finished building will be better than the old building which burned down.  This is more than a replacement; it is an improvement.  

       Through your generous support, one of the oldest operations at Holy Trinity Monastery can continue. It was started by Fr. Innokenti 50 years ago under the abbacy of Archbishop Averky. Archimandrite Panteleimon, the monastery’s founder, took a great interest in it. Honey production benefits the monastery by providing one of God’s best foods for health as well as additional income for the monastery by selling it.

       Monastery honey is blessed by special prayers from the Book of Needs said over each batch. This reminds us, as the Fathers of the Church also remind us, that we are to imitate the diligent bees. As the bee collects pollen from various flowers to produce its honey, so we are to collect all that is good in the world and deliver it back to Christ, who is the author of those goods.

       It is with your diligence that we have been able to continue this important work, and we thank you for all your efforts in helping us with it!


An Appeal from Holy Trinity Monastery - 09/14/16

Dear Supporters of our Monastery!

As you may know, part of our apiary burnt down in 2014, causing $20,000 worth of damage. Brother Lev, our beekeeper, has been trying to rebuild it as well as he can. He needs to repair an existing building in order to process this year's harvest. So far he has been extracting honey by hand in the kitchen!

We have already invested in digging a well and extending power lines to the apiary to provide water and electricity to the site.

Now we need $4,000 to make essential repairs to the apiary building in order to process honey normally this year.

The apiary has been an important part of the monastery for decades. We need your support for the apiary to continue to operate.

You can support this project by donating using PayPal on the monastery website - http://jordanville.org/donate.html. Please write "Apiary" in the "Add special instructions to the seller" section of the donation review page.

You can also write a check to Holy Trinity Monastery with "Apiary" in the memo. Please mail checks to Holy Trinity Monastery, P.O. Box 36, Jordanville, NY 13361.

May God bless you for your generosity!
