The modern history of the Studite Monks begins at the start of the 20th century. Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky established the order to renew Eastern monasticism in the Church. The first renewed monastery of the Studite Order was established in 1904 in Sknyliv, near Lviv. In 1906 Metropolitan Andrey, as the archimandrite (abbot) of the Studites, set a Typicon (rule book) for the order. Many monks were repressed during the First World War. At the beginning of the Second World War there were 196 Studite monks in Galicia (western Ukraine), the Lemkiv region (in present-day Poland) and the Hutsul region (near the Carpathian Mountains). The monasteries were liquidated with the coming of the Communist regime, most of the monks were sent to Siberia. A small group of Studites managed to leave for the West and to found Holy Dormition Monastery in Woodstock, Canada. After the Greek Catholic Church was outlawed, the Studites continued to operate in the underground. In 1963 Patriarch Josyf Slipyj became the order's patron. In 1973 Lubomyr Husar, now the head of the Church, became archimandrite (abbot) of the Studites outside of Ukraine. Today there are 90 Studite monks in 8 monasteries in Ukraine, Canada and Italy. There are two lavras (major monasteries).
Mission of the Studites: catechizing children and youth-- every year the Studite retreat house in Yaremche (in the Carpathian Mountains) hosts 200 children from the Chernobyl zone; educational activities-- the religious publishing house Svichado operates from the monastery in Lviv as does a workshop of sacred art, Rozvii ("Unfolding"); other work-- cultivating medicinal plants, bee hives. The monastic day is composed of 8 hours of prayer, 8 hours of work and 8 hours of rest.
