The Novo-Diveevo Restoration Committee is hosting a fundraising BBQ at Otrada Russian Cultural Center on Sunday, October 4 at 12:00 PM. Archpriest Yaroslav Belikow (cleric of Holy Dormition Convent Novo-Diveevo in Nanuet, NY) will be cooking the meal and hosting the event following the Sunday Divine Liturgy. The event is $30.00 per person, $20.00 for seniors and teens. Children 12 years old and under are free.
The Committee has been working on renovating the Novo-Diveevo Reception Hall that had its official re-opening this past June. The building went through major renovations and the costs for repair exceeded expectations. Sunday lunches have been successful and offer an opportunity for people to have a meal following the Liturgy. The hall is also available for repast meals and gatherings and has already been used for such several times in the past months. Still, finishing touches need to be addressed in order to complete the project.
The Novo-Diveevo Restoration Committee is also seeking to continue their work on other much-needed projects at the convent. These projects include the development of a Convent Welcome Center, as well as raising funds for road resurfacing throughout the property. All proceeds from the BBQ will go to benefit the convent.
