The Orthodox monastery where I was baptized, Holy Trinity in Jordanville (New York) is doing their annual fundraising drive. They are the spiritual home for me and many Christians on the east coast. Please consider making a donation to them so that they can continue to serve pilgrims while training the future generation of based priests at their seminary.
If you have any questions about the monastery, feel free to ask!

I was able to stay away from the monastery for almost three months. I'm in the back left of the photo.

How exactly did you arrange for your baptism to be there? Were there any notable differences between this monastery and others that you've visited?

I'm keen to purchase the following icons from the Holy Trinity Icon Studio:

Images are pretty poor quality on the website, and I've no idea what the final product would look like.

Does anyone have photos of finishished icons from there, so I can get an idea please?

Secondly, what spec would look best? I was thinking "Mounted and Lacquered Canvas Print" with gold leaf.

I've ordered several icons from them and am pleased with the quality. I usually get the Mounted and Laminated Print option, which gives it a sleek, shinier finish. I imagine the Canvas Print option will make it feel more like an original painting, but I've never tried that option.

Jordanville's icons are very high quality, the fuzzy images on their site are not indicative of the final product. Get the Mounted And Laminated ones like Roosh suggested, they're great. Icons are not traditionally painted on canvas (rather, gessoed wood) so that defeats the purpose of the canvas prints, even if they have gold leaf added. I feel the Mounted And Laminated ones are a better value.

Beware though, there can be a long lead time on stuff from their icon studio, so you might be waiting a month or two. Damascene Gallery is the best icon shop I've come across, and their lead times are not so bad.

One of Jordanville's monks is giving a talk at Bucknell University in October:
On Sunday, October 17, the interim dean of students at Holy Trinity Seminary in Jordanville, NY, Hierodeacon Theodore (Stanway), will deliver a talk at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, PA, entitled "Truth Before Peace: Fr. George Calciu’s Message to the Youth of His Day – and Ours" on the teachings of the late Romanian priest, one of the great confessors of Christianity in the 20th century under the Communist yoke. Fr. Calciu suffered severe physical and psychological torture in a hellish communist prison designed to shape a new human personality along atheistic lines, and emerged as a revered spiritual elder in the Orthodox tradition.

The talk will be at 7:00 PM in the outdoor classroom area between Bertrand Library and Academic West, rain location Gardner Lecture Hall.

Father Calciu’s lessons are especially pertinent to young people today grappling with finding and keeping traditional Christian Faith amid an increasingly materialistic technocratic culture that claims to reshape human nature and the environment without God.

Fr. Theodore is a monk at Holy Trinity Monastery, the flagship monastery and seminary of the exiled Russian Church Synod during the era of communist rule in Russia and Eastern Europe, and a center of a vibrant renewal of interest in Russian Orthodoxy in the West today. A veteran of the Royal Navy and native of Glasgow, Fr. Theodore himself is a "Scottish Orthodox" Christian in the Russian tradition, and earned his M.Div. from Holy Trinity recently with a thesis on the Orthodox Church in India.

The talk is sponsored by the Bucknell Orthodox Christian Fellowship, the Bucknell Office of Religious and Spiritual Life, and St. John the Wonderworker Church, which serves the Bucknell Orthodox Christian community. On the morning of October 17, Fr. Theodore will give the homily at Divine Liturgy in St. John’s at 10:00 AM.
