The roof of the chapel of Saint John of Kronstadt and Saint John of Rila was in great need of repair. It was built through the labors of a bulgarian refugee Dimitri Blachev who was taken into the monastery by Vladyka Laurus back in the 1970s. Dimitri after laboring here for many years decided it was time to leave and in gratitude to the Monastery he built this chapel in typical balkan style. The roof needed to be replaced as it was falling in and the beautiful iconography inside was in danger of being destroyed. Taking advantage of the roofers who were in the monastery replacing the roof of the main residence and office building it was decided to go ahead and replace the roof with a wood shingle roof.
