Dear in Christ friends of Holy Trinity Monastery, 

With God’s help and your generous support we have been steadily working on various projects in the monastery, some of which have been completed,  some are currently still  being worked on and some we hope to begin and complete in the next twelve months. The following projects have already been completed:  The main septic disposal system of the monastery, flooring in the monastic building, new hood and exhaust system for our kitchen, carpentry shop roof replaced, leaks repaired in monastery cathedral roof  and windows replaced in the main dome, new exhaust system in church, new crypt doors, plumbing repaired which had water coming in the basement of the monastic dorm, bell tower repairs and icon studio roof replaced

We would like to continue this year with continuing work on projects we have started and begin a number of new projects. Work has been steady  in the renovation of the carpentry shop but there is still much work to be done. With the current pace we hope  complete this project by 2026. The candle factory roof has been leaking in many areas over the years and the time has come to replace the whole roof. In addition to the roof a new septic system needs to be installed for the candle factory and carpentry shop as well as a bathroom for the monastics working in the candle factory.  

The external main cathedral frescoes  as well as the fresco of the bell tower have been fading away over the years due to the harsh weather elements. Our plan is to replace these frescoes with mosaics as was done in front of the bell tower a number of years ago and over the chapel of Saint Seraphim.  Over the years the number of pilgrims has greatly increased in the monastery and gradually the former printshop of the monastery has become the second refectory where we feed pilgrims on Sundays and feast days. This area will be frescoed by Protodeacon Paul Drozdowski.

A few years ago we had upgraded our hardware for network connectivity of all our building both in the monastery and seminary. This was a very big project and it enabled us to get a secure system and a new phone system as many of our phones had stopped working in the old system because of damaged cables underground. In order to maintain the network and provide security the hardware needs to  be maintained with a yearly licensing fee. Having completed the network project  of all building we are now ready to begin installing security cameras to add to our various workshops in our property.

Some months ago we begun to replace windows  in the monastic dormitory as nearly all the windows are in need of  replacing. Many of the old windows had cracks, they would not open properly, cold air would come in  and replacing all the windows will help preserve heat and make them functional to use in the work areas and monastic rooms. This is an ongoing project. A number of times we have had power outages but because we do not have a generator backup to kick in when power goes off, water stops working and often fridges and freezers when the outage is long enough get very warm and  food can spoil. As the brotherhood is increasing and we have a number of elderly monastics it is necessary to set up a back up for emergencies. 

Due to the increasing number of pilgrims at Holy Trinity Monastery our current kitchen prep area and storage  is insufficient to accommodate the number of pilgrims we feed on a weekly basis. In the immediate future we need to purchase more equipment and storage shelving. The last item is a monastery work van that is needed for maintenance work, shopping and delivering our candles to parishes. 

These are some of the projects we hope with God’s help to complete in the next year or two. In the mean time we will also be working on cleaning and preparing various areas in the monastery to convert to living spaces and new workshops. The brotherhood  is gradually increasing and we are beginning to run out of living accommodation for monastics. 

We ask for your prayerful support and if you are able to help financially with any of the above projects  we would be most grateful to your assistance.

In Christ

Dear in Christ friends of Holy Trinity Monastery, We would like to give you an update of our 2022 Summer Facilities Maintenance Appeal. Thank you to all who have contributed  thus far. With God’s help, work is underway for various projects in this appeal. Currently we are working on the septic disposal system of the monastery, replacing our carpentry shop roof as well as replacing the seminary building roof with a metal roof due to water leaks. Work is also underway in preparing new cupolas for our Cathedral and six new windows for  the main dome.  The doors to the crypts of the main cathedral have  been replaced with new heavy duty metal doors and painted.  Other projects that have been  completed are the cleaning and painting of the bell tower, and the restoration of the main entrance to the monastery dormitory building.  We have raised nearly $31,000 of our $200,000 goal thus far. Please continue your support so that we may be able to complete these projects and other maintenance needs as they arise before winter.   God bless your generosity! + Bishop Luke  

Dear in Christ friends of Holy Trinity Monastery, Your support over the years has helped us to continue our mission here in Jordanville on behalf of all of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia(ROCOR). However, we need some urgent help to defray the costs of repairs and improvements. Holy Trinity Monastery was built in the 1940s when building codes were different from those of today. The Monastery Dormitory currently has an inadequate septic disposal system that needs urgent repair. We also need to replace the aging flooring in the monastic building as it is crumbling and breaking into pieces.We need to install a new hood and exhaust fan system in our kitchen to be up to code. Our carpentry shop roof needs to be replaced so that the woodworking tools are not ruined by exposure to rain. We have repaired leaks in the roof of the main cathedral, replaced the flooring and rugs in the main cathedral, and are working on restoring the frescoes and replacing the five main cupolas, and six windows in the main dome, as well as the four crypt doors. We have received generous support for this project, however, it is not completely funded. We need to raise $200,000.00 to cover these expenses. Please use the links below to send a donation via Tithely, Paypal, Text Give to (844) 638-0876 or send us a cheque payable to Holy Trinity Monastery, earmarked "summer facilities maintenance". God bless your generosity! + Bishop Luke
