At St.Alexander Oshevenskiy Monastery, Russia
This monastery is situated in Arkhangelsk region (in the north of Russia) and was founded almost 600 years ago. Now it is in very bad condition, only 4 men live and work there, incl 2 priests. They have some plans how to find volonteers and revive the place. The papa Feodosiy is on the photo.
