St. Irene Chrysovalantou Greek Orthodox Monastery in Astoria NY Festival

St. Irene Chrysovalantou Greek Monastery
36-07 23rd Avenue
Astoria, NY 11105
Church Website

The Sacred Patriarchal and Stavropegial Monastery of Saint Irene Chrysovalantou was founded in 1972. The monastery is located in the heart of Astoria in New York and named in honor of Irene of Capadocia, wonderworking abbess of a 9th century AD monastery called Chrysovalantou. During this holy mother's reign, the fame of Chrysovalantou reached the corners of the earth, as Irene, a woman of unparallel physical and spiritual beauty, relentlessly guided her spiritual daughters to Paradise. Just as the Cross is located at the root or foundation of our lives as Christians, and so it is that a portion of our Lord Jesus Christ's Holy Cross was planted at the foundation of the monastery when it was being built. The monastery receives many letters of thanks with Saint Irene's miraculous interventions written from faithful around the globe. The monastery publishes these letters in its quarterly publication, The Voice of Orthodoxy.
