St. Tikhon's Seminary Well Represented at March for Life - 01/19/18

This year's March for Life recognizes the 45th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the US.  Please click here to see Metropolitan Tikhon's address for the Sanctity of Life Sunday (Jan. 21).  Metropolitan Tikhon offered the opening prayer this year!

St. Tikhon's Seminary was well-represented during the March.  Archbishop Michael, Seminary Rector, and Archpriest Steven Voytovich, Seminary Dean, were among those who stood behind His Beatitude as he offered the opening prayer.   Fr. Ignatius Gauvain, Director of Student Life, came with many seminarians to participate in the march.  Hieromonk Herman (Majkrzak) led the choir during the prayer service led by His Beatitude.  Later, he led those gathered, including many from St. Vladimir's Seminary, in singing while the Orthodox group participated in the March.  

The March for Life is one time during the year when our Orthodox Christian community comes together to literally "walk the walk" in witnessing the sanctity of human life!

Ordination of Dn. John Segvich to the Holy Priesthood - 01/14/18

On Sunday, January 14, 2018, Dn. John Segvich was ordained to the Holy Priesthood in his home parish of St. Luke the Evangelist Orthodox Church in Palos Hills, Ill.

His Grace, the Right Reverend Paul, Bishop of Chicago and the Diocese of the Midwest concelebrated the liturgy with Archpriest Paul Jannakos, Archpriest Andrew Harrison, Priest Danial Doss (STOTS 2010), Protodeacon Andrew Werbiansky, and Dn. John.

After the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy, a celebratory banquet was held in the parish fellowship hall. Many members of Fr. John's family were present.

Axios!  May God bless Fr. John, Mat. Wendy and their family as Fr. John completes his pastoral formation this year at St. Tikhon's Seminary.
