Save the Jordanville Icon Studio
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!
