A “PEARL” of OUR REGION
What delight for everybody to visit our Gystynskiy Convent of the Holy Trinity to pray and speak to nuns full of spiritual life. The foundation of the Gustynskiy Convent began in 1600. The founder of this Holy place was a hieromonk Joseph who came from the Athos mountain. His aim was to find a quiet and empty of people place to build a mo nastery. He turned his eyes upon the island of Gystynya. This island encircled with water and thick forests was a perfect place for the life of monks. Joseph and his disciples began to settle a new abode. They were not alone. News about buil ding of a new monastery spread very quickly and a lot of people came to the is-land, settled there and helped the monks in there work. Food, money, building materials were brought by different people. Thanks to diligence and voluntary of-ferings a little wooden church was built in 1614. Joseph was elected the prior of the monastery. From 1625 till 1671 the fire destroyed the monastery three times. But after every fire the buildings of the monastery were restored. In 1674-1675 the Holy Trinity Church was built by hetman Ivan Samoilovich on his own funds. Due to the contribution of famous people and persons of consequence the monastery became the richest monastery in Ukraine called the “second Lavra”. Unfortunately the lot of the monastery wasnt merciful and in 1793 the monas- tery was closed and by the time the churches and enclosure were damaged. More than fifty years the monastery was abandoned and neglected. In the 40-s of the XIX century the archbishop Gedeon made everything in his power to renew the monastery of Gystynya and worshipping of mass began again. One of the ico- nostases of the churches was created in St. Petersburg in Byzantine style.
And again God tested faithfulness of those who loved Him. In 1924
after the October revolution the monastery was closed. A community for homeless children and later an insane asylum were placed there. New dwellers destroyed the monuments of architecture and churches fell into decay. In 1943 the convent was
allowed but 16 years later it was closed thirdly.
God blessed the monastery when Ukraine became independent. In 1993 it was opened by the efforts of many people. Mother Superior Vira and nuns of the abode accepted the responsibility to restore the old monastery. Since 1994 four churches and enclosure have been renewed, new bells on the bell-tower have been installed and houses for nuns have been built. Now there is a stockyard, a
poultry-yard, hothouses, an apiary, a refectory, a bakery on the territory of the monastery where nuns work. If pilgrims come here from other places they can stay in the inn.
After morning prayer every nun comes up to the Mother Superior to get her work of penance.
From generation to generation people are accustomed to bring their joy and sorrow to the monastery to ask God to support, console and bless. The monas-
tery of Gystynya was burnt, destroyed, desecrated but retrieved from ashes. For
400 years the Gystynskiy Convent of the Holy Trinity has been gifting love
and hope to Christians.
