The Holy Cross Orthodox Monastery is a monastery of the schismatic Russian True-Orthodox Church. Located in Niagara Falls, New York, it formerly belonged to ROCOR, the OCA, Holy Orthodox Church in North America, and True Russian Orthodox Church under Metropolitan Damascene of Moscow. It was established in the year 2005 by Archimandrite Nicholas (Iuhos), built in the former Holy Trinity Orthodox Church (est. 1951).

Plans for the monastery include the organization of special spiritual retreats and lectures for those who are interested in learning more about the Orthodox faith, spirituality, the Church Fathers, and much more.

The monastery property consists of about 3 1/2 acres of land, including a brownstone church, a rectory, a garage, and a separate building which has three apartments upstairs, a hall, a kitchen, a future library and a basement.

The main building needs capital repairs, a new roof, new windows, new electrical wiring, and new heating and air conditioning system. Once restored, it is in this building that the monastic community will live.
