SPIRITUAL WAVES || Documentary about the Restoration of Jordanville

A financial crisis has hit Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY, because of a series of structural, electrical, and plumbing issues. Metropolitan Hilarion led a special task force from the Eastern American Diocesan Council to Jordanville on December 14th. The purpose of the trip was to investigate the problem and offer assistance to the brotherhood. Our diocesan film crew traveled to Jordanville with the Metropolitan to produce this documentary.
