Sacrosanto Monasterio de La Santísima Trinidad from their website.

Fr. Nektary is a most interesting and engaging person:  Born in the country of Georgia and raised mainly in Mexico, he speaks 6 languages fluently including Georgian, Farsi, Greek, Russian,, Spanish and English; holds multiple doctorate degrees (in history, medical science and theology);  serves as a medical doctor and surgeon, providing the income for his monasteries.

He is the head of the Russian mission in Mexico under our Archbishop Kyrill.  In addition to his duties as Abbot, spiritual father, traveling priest and surgeon, he and his monastic brotherhood translate Orthodox liturgical texts and literature into Spanish.
