Photo and description
The Monastery of the New Martyrs of Russia in Novosibirsk is an active Orthodox monastery, which is the first such structure within the city. It is located at the church on Novogodnaya Street, in the building of the former Novosibirsk cinema "Luch".
The temple was consecrated in honor of the Holy New Martyrs of Russia, who suffered for their faith during the cruel persecution of the Church by the Soviet government, in December 1993. In the fall of 1996, Hieromonk Theodosius (Cherneikin) was appointed rector of the monastery. Since that time, the monastic community gradually began to gather, which later became the basis for the male monastery. In October 1999, by decision of the Holy Synod, Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexy II blessed the transformation of the parish in honor of All Saints into the monastery of the Holy New Martyrs of Russia.
In the monastery there is a house church, consecrated in the name of the Monk Seraphim of Sarov the Wonderworker, where the evening and morning monastic rule is performed every day. Divine Liturgy is held on Saturdays.
The inhabitants of the monastery are engaged in carving and painting on wood. There is also a carpentry workshop, a huge library of spiritual literature and audio and video library. All clergy and novices study at the Orthodox Theological Institute in the city of Novosibirsk.
Today, there are 20 monks in the monastery of the New Martyrs of Russia, including 10 monks who have holy orders.
