Background Information:
Stavropegial Convent of the Dormition; "Novo-Diveevo" is located approximately 24 miles north of New York City. The founder of the convent was Archbishop Andrei of Rockland, then Protopresbyter Adrian Rimarenko (starets Nektarii of Optina died under his epitrachelion). In 1949, with the arrival in America of a multitude of refugees, ROCOR’s First Hierarch Metropolitan Anastasy entrusted Fr. Adrian to build a spiritual center. A former Roman Catholic monastery was purchased and a Russian convent was founded. There are two churches on the property; the “small church” as it is known is named in honor of the Dormition. The main church was built in honor of St. Seraphim of Sarov. The convent is home to the largest Russian Orthodox cemetery in the Diaspora. An Old Age Home is also operated by the convent. The convent has many sacred items including: a full-length portrait of St. Seraphim of Sarov painted during his lifetime, a cross from the Ipatiev House, and the “Vladimir” icon of the Holy Theotokos that belonged to St. Amvrosii of Optina.
