About Us

Ortho­dox Life is an Eng­lish-lan­guage web pub­li­ca­tion of Holy Trin­i­ty Monastery in Jor­danville, NY. It began in 1950, first as a trans­la­tion of the Russ­ian-lan­guage Православная Жизнь and lat­er tak­ing on a life of its own as a print peri­od­i­cal jour­nal for Ortho­dox Chris­tians in the west. We now take this effort online in order to offer a broad­er range of mul­ti­me­dia con­tent, whilst reach­ing a wider audi­ence of Ortho­dox Chris­tians and inquir­ers seek­ing the sober reflec­tions of the Ortho­dox Church that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent (John 17:3)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.

Ortho­dox Life is pub­lished with the bless­ing of His Grace +LUKE, Bish­op of Syra­cuse and abbot of Holy Trin­i­ty Monastery. Man­age­ment of the site and con­tent is del­e­gat­ed to the staff of Holy Trin­i­ty Pub­li­ca­tions.
