The New Skete of Cambridge, New York

A group of ascetic communities founded by Fr. Laurence Mancuso and comprised of a men's monastery, a women's monastery, and a lay community. Originally Uniate Franciscan, New Skete was received into the Orthodox Church in America in 1979. In the Orthodox world, New Skete is known for its sometimes controversial liturgical reforms and its interest in the ecumenical movement; in the secular world, for its extremely successful dog-breeding and dog-training programme.
