HOLY NIKOLAI ORTHODOX CHURCH IN NORWAY

Holy Trifon Skita is the first and still the only Orthodox monestary in Norway. “Skita” is a term used for a special form of a monestary. In our situation, the term expresses the size and our status both as part of and working in the Holy Nikolai Church. This limit a total and extensive monestary life in its full form. A “Skita” is a more loosly organized monastic union, often subordinated a major monestary. Holy Trifon Skita is dedicated to Holy Trifon of Petsamo His work amongst the skolté-sami population in the 16th century also included areas which later were organized as a part of Norway. Therefor he has a special relevance to us. In addition, he respresent a direct connection to the great Orthodox monastic tradition as a monk and founder of the Petsamo (Petshenga) Monestary. He built the churches in Boris-Gleb and in Neiden in 1565, the latter is a part of Holy Nikolai Orthodox Church.

Holy Trifon Skita originates in the evironment around the publication “Orthodox Røst” (Orthodox Voice) and Holy Trifon Publishing founded in 1976. Since then it has been a operated as a part of the activites of the Skita. In 1980 Holy Skita Brotherhood was established and located to the lanscape Toten, 1 1/2 hours drive north of Oslo. Here the monastic life were strenghtened and practiced according to the old monastic traditions.In addition the publishing activites were continued. Journals, books and pamphlets were published and lectures produced. The Skita produces candles for ecclesiastical use of reproduction of icons. The property was an old farm consisted of a main building, two guesthouses and a Church.

The Skita is publishing the journal ”Tabor” intended for passing on the monastic culture and visions. We emphasize prayer as a wandering “on the road to the light of Tabor”. The hesychastic tradition is the framework which gives us the contemplation sought after when trying to achieve closeness and unity with God.

We do not believe this is limited to an elite, but is aveilable to all through the sacramental mysteries. Noone can achieve anything greater than the unity with Christ in the eucaristic communion. Noone can achieve more of the Spirit of God than what already is given. However, by working with the “inner self”, asceticism, through prayer and spiritual consentration, we will be able to use these gifts and grow to reach “aldersmålet for Kristi fylde”, as stated by the apostle. Therefor we believe the monastic values and visions also are of interest to those who are “living in the world”, that these treasures may enrich and inspire all mankind, “light a fire” and initiate the longing after perfection and holyness through the love of Christ as we all, without exception, are called upon.

As a result of plans for Holy Nikolai Orthodox Church, the property at Toten were sold in the autum of 1999. A new and more appropriate location were found and in Hurdal, also north of the capital Oslo. Here it is possible to visit ut, come and take part in our daily rythm, and for those who stuggle in the busy everyday life. prayer live for a periode in sience
