::Dcn Lev installed a pipeline, bringing cold water into the monastery from a spring on the mountain above the monastery bulding.
*1976: Deacon Lev returns to resume development of monastery. He travels a lot, lecturing and giving talks to youth. During this time he develops a sympathy for those Orthodox who lived away from a [[church]]. He often travelled as much as 10,000 miles on buses in a year for those who are isolated or those who request talks.
*1980: Deacon Lev is ordered to cease lecturing in parishes on the subject of the toll houses{{<ref|1}} >[http://orthodoxinfo.com/death/tollhouse_debate.aspx The Debate Over Aerial Toll-Houses: Extract from the Minutes of the Session of the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia]</ref> by the [[Synod]] of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia. He was deposed by ROCOR for disobeying his bishop by continuing to preach his heresy of "soul sleep", and "for having entered a jurisdiction not in communion with ROCOR" and went to the schismatic [[Free Serbian Church]].

*1981 Mar: In response to a 1980 request from a small group of Romanian Canadians who wished to worship in the monastery [[chapel]], [[Bishop]] Ireney of New Gracanica ordains Deacon Lev to the [[priest]]hood for the newly-formed parish of St Tikhon and for the monastery, and [[tonsure]]d him with the name ''Lazar''. Later, Fr Lazar tonsures Vasili with the name ''Varlaam''.
*Because of the unavailability of locally obtainable pure beeswax candles, Fr Varlaam built a small [[candle]] factory to produce hand-dipped, pure beeswax candles in the parishes and the monastery.
*1988: Fr. Lazar joins the [[Church of the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece]] and is raised to the status of [[archimandrite]] by Metropolitan Paisios of North and South America.
*1990: Archimandrite Lazar is received by the [[Holy Synod of Milan]]{{<ref|2}} >[http://web.archive.org/web/20010409063509/www.ccms.net/~milan/Statements.htm Statement concerning the ordination of Abp Lazar and a call to repentance]</ref> and is consecrated as Bishop of Vancouver by Metropolitan Evlogios of Milan, Archbishop Gregorios of Turin, and Bishop Vigile of Paris.
*1991 Nov: After a search, the Monastery was able to acquire an illustrious property that the monastery rests on today. The property was named ''New Ostrog'', and the candle factory was dedicated to the protection of St Vasili of Ostrog.
*1996: The monastery, without a canonical release, moved under the omophorion of the schismatic [[Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Kiev Patriarchate)]]. Patriarch Volodymyr (Romaniuk) elevated Bp Lazar to Archbishop, and consecrated Fr Varlaam as Bishop of Vancouver befor his death in 1995.
