Saint Tikhon Monastery has the distinction of being the oldest monastic community of the Orthodox Church in the western hemisphere. It was founded in 1905, and has since besides giving a monastic witness to the Church, has a parish community, press, museum, and seminary that contributes to the life of the Church. The monastics gave me permission to shoot around the grounds of their facilities.
