Jordanville update: How you touched lives at Holy Trinity Monastery
Jordanville update: How you touched lives at Holy Trinity Monastery

Your tremendous response to our fundraising drive for Holy Trinity Monastery resulted in over $168,000 in assistance in 2013. Thanks to your generosity, the brethren have been able to make improvements in several areas of their life, which would not have been possible had they not benefited from your financial support.  Our mission prevents us from sponsoring repairs, but there was a lot of interest from our donors to help the monastery, so we agreed to help the brethren with day-to-day expenses, which freed up funds for the needed repairs. Here’s how you helped Holy Trinity Monastery in 2013 in the words of monastery accountant Hieromonk Theophylact.

Healthier food - 40%

"We have reached a good balance, so that we can perform our obediences and prayers. We have more fresh fruit, vegetables and protein every day, so we maintain our health."

“Our oldest monk Fr. Job suffers from severe arthritis. He has been dragging himself to church with two crutches for years.  He now has a mobile chair, so he can ride to church by himself.”

New Infirmary - 5%

“We now have a real infirmary with equipment for first aid, and also rooms with hospital beds for ill monastics.  Here they can be given frequent Communion and can listen to the services which are piped into the infirmary.”

Health insurance - 50%

“We cannot afford insurance for everyone. This money was spent on medical care (insurance and medical bills) for the monastics and teachers.”
