Plans for the monastery included the organization of special spiritual retreats and lectures for those who were interested in learning more about the Orthodox faith, spirituality and the Church Fathers.
The monastery property consists of about 3 1/2 acres of land, including a brownstone church, a rectory, a garage, and a separate building which has three apartments upstairs, a hall, a kitchen, a future library and a basement.
