HTP to display new books at diocesan clergy retreats
This year, The Eastern American Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia will be able to hold its traditional Lenten Pastoral retreat for the first time since 2019, due to the restrictions necessitated by the Coronavirus pandemic. This year the diocese is hosting two retreats, a "Northern" retreat at Holy Trinity Monastery (Jordanville, NY) and a "Southern" retreat at St. Mary of Egypt Orthodox Church (Roswell, GA). Holy Trinity Publications will display a table of new books and classic publications at each retreat.
The Northern retreat will take place Monday, March 28th - Wednesday, March 30th at our home base in Jordanville, NY. We will have a table in the seminary hall featuring our newest books and publications most thematically appropriate to clergy. In addition, all our books may be purchased in the monastery's retail store, Holy Trinity Church Supplies, which will also be open for attendees throughout the conference.
During the sixth week of Great Lent, we will also display our publications at the Southern pastoral retreat, to be held Monday April 11 - Wednesday, April 13 in Roswell, GA.
2022 ROCOR Directory now available
The annual directory of Bishops, Clergy, and Parishes of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia is now available as a free PDF download from the website of Holy Trinity Monastery.
Paperback copies may also be ordered via Lulu.
