Delegation Travels to Kerala India - 11/20/15

His Beatitude Tikhon, Metropolitan of the Orthodox Church in America, asked Archpriest John Behr, Dean of St. Vladimir's Seminary, and Archpriest Steven Voytovich, Dean of St. Tikhon's Seminary, to accompany him to Kerala India, for the 200th anniversary of the Seminary in Kottayam!  They will be traveling together for a week, beginning Friday, Nov. 20th, between this historic seminary  and a sister seminary in Nagpur (also identified as STOTS!).  Please check back here for updates during the course of the week, and photographs as well!

The seminaries in Kottayam and Nagpur are part of the Indian (Malankara) Orthodox Church.  Both St. Vladimir's and St. Tikhon's have had Malankara seminarians from this region studying here in North America, so we look forward to seeing alumni in the course of our trip!

Archpriest Joseph Martin celebrates 50th Anniversary of Ordination - 11/07/15

Archpriest Joseph Martin (Class of 1963), celebrated his 50th annivesary of ordination on Saturday, November 7th.  The celebration began with Divine Liturgy at Holy Resurrection Orthodox Cathedral where he served for twenty years before retirement.  His Eminence Mark, Archbishop of the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania, presided at the Liturgy with both diocesan clergy and Archimandrite Sergius and Archpriest Steven Voytovich from St. Tikhon's.

At the end of the Liturgy he was given a Synodal Grammota, he and Matushka Gloria were given a Grammota from the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania.  He was also  given a pectoral cross from St. Tikhon's Seminary, in recognition of his years of active service on the seminary board (longest serving active member), and serving as spiritual advisor for the Century Association, that raises funds for the seminary.  Matushka Gloria has faithfully served on the Century Association with Fr. Joseph.

The celebration continued with a wonderful luncheon at Gennetti's in Wilkes-Barre.  Fellow chaplains from the VA Hospital that he serves with, many local clergy, family members, and many others came together to share in the joy of this anniversary.

May God grant Archpriest Joseph and Matushka Gloria many blessed years!  

Thank you to David Mills of Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in Wilkes-Barre for the photos!
