On behalf of the Brotherhood of Holy Trinity Monastery we would like to express our gratitude to all our donors who helped defray the expenses of the environmental project concerning our oil tanks. The final cost was $816,295.50. The financial burden would have been impossible without your support.

God bless your generosity!

In Christ,

Archimandrite Luke and Brotherhood.
