Lintula Holy Trinity Convent is a small monastery located in Palokki, Heinävesi, Finland, close to the New Valamo Monastery. The Holy Trinity Monastery was founded in 1895 on the isthmus of Karelia. The early sisterhood received spiritual advice from the miracle worker St. John of Kronstadt, who visited the monastery twice in 1895-1896. In 1946, the Convent moved to Heinävesi. It is currently under the spiritual guidance of Igumena Mikaela.
