Welcome to Orthodox Life

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
