On November 17, 2016, on the 25th anniversary of the day abbess Sergiya of the Seraphim-Diveyevo Monastery became an Hegumenia, the northern side altar of the Dormition church was consecrated in honor of the vision of the Mother of God to Venerable Sergiy of Radonezh. Upon completion of the Divine Liturgy served at the newly consecrated altar table, Metropolitan of Nizhny Novgorod and Arzamas Georgiy shared how, while studying at Moscow's theological schools, he used to study the "Chronicle of the Seraphim-Diveyevo Monastery" and would grieve over the fact he could not walk the Holy Kanavka, venerate the holy relics of Venerable Seraphim, or visit his hermitage cells. Then, the monastery's rebuilding began 25 years ago, and what a wondrous beauty we behold with our own eyes. "It is extremely rewarding to be a part of this revival process," remarked His Grace.
A month later, on December 26, 2016, Metropolitan of Nizhny Novgorod and Arzamas Georgiy consecrated the southern side altar of the Dormition church in honor of the appearance of the Mother of God to Venerable Seraphim of Sarov, followed by consecration of another southerly side altar dedicated to the Synaxis of All Saints of Diveyevo. It took place May 6, 2017, the remembrance day of the Holy and Great Martyr George the Victory-Bearer. "Today, as we consecrate the side chapel in the name of the Synaxis of the Diveyevo saints," said the head of the Nizhny Novgorod Archdiocese, "we do it for the sake of the worshippers. We believe the faithful, especially our young people and children, will come here to learn of the glory of God via glorious beauty of His church. You and I are truly blessed to witness the revival of the Christian faith in Russian lands. It is also our joy and consolation to acknowledge the fact that we were handpicked by God to do such God-pleasing work. We know and we believe that, through us, the Lord delivers of His words: "My Strength is made perfect in weakness."
