The Russian Orthodox Convent Novo-Diveevo cordially invites you to celebrate its 70th Anniversary!


In 1949 on the feast day of the Protection of the Mother of God, the first Divine Liturgy was served in the Convent by Proto-presbyter Adrian Rymarenko, later Archbishop Andrei of Rockland. From that day to the present, the Convent has celebrated daily Divine Services.

Join us for this festive celebration!
