Dear Reader,

I am pleased to welcome you to the new Orthodox Life website.

Six­ty-six years ago Holy Trin­i­ty Monastery began pro­duc­ing the print jour­nal Ortho­dox Life. The year was 1950 and this Eng­lish-lan­guage pub­li­ca­tion was a major under­tak­ing for a com­mu­ni­ty of most­ly Russ­ian-speak­ing monks, but the mis­sion­ary need for a source of Ortho­dox spir­i­tu­al nour­ish­ment in the Eng­lish lan­guage made this effort an imper­a­tive. That same mis­sion­ary spir­it has now led us to move from a print to an online plat­form. It is our firm belief that this step will make the con­tent of Ortho­dox Life much more wide­ly avail­able than ever before and eas­i­ly sharable. Thanks to these new tech­nolo­gies we can bet­ter make the voice of Ortho­doxy heard in our times.

Ortho­dox Life will no longer pro­duce bimonth­ly issues; rather, new con­tent will be post­ed on a week­ly basis uti­liz­ing all the best forms of dig­i­tal media. As our ini­tial offer­ing there are sev­er­al new posts as well as arti­cles from the past for the ben­e­fit of those who may nev­er have seen Ortho­dox Life in print. God will­ing, we hope to add a full archive of all back issues. 

No pay­ment is required to read the new Ortho­dox Life, sim­ply your email address. If you find this site of val­ue to you, please con­sid­er mak­ing a dona­tion through the donate but­ton in the sidebar.

Thank you for your sup­port in the past and please pray for the suc­cess of this new initiative.

In Christ,

Archi­man­drite Luke
