Thank You for Your Generosity!

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!
