Dear Supporters & Friends,
Christ is in our Midst!
Since its humble beginnings 90 years ago, Holy Trinity Monastery is the largest monastery of ROCOR, and an important spiritual centre for those seeking fulfillment in the religious life. Throughout those years, it is people like you who share the vision of our forefathers of Blessed memory, that have supported and maintained the Monastery.
On May 21 (New Calendar), on the feast of the Apostle and Evangelist John the Theologian, in the 103rd year of his life, the eldest inhabitant of the Holy Trinity Monastery, Lev Ivanovich Pawlinets, reposed quietly in hospital after a brief illness.
On Pascha day, at 3PM, the joyful Paschal service of Vespers was served. This is already vespers for Bright Monday. A distinguishing feature of this service is the reading of the Gospel by the bishop, towards the people, while the priests are gathered below the amvon, with deacons supporting the Gospel.
