Annual St. Nicholas Day Celebration - 12/06/14

On Saturday, Dec. 6, 2014, following the Divine Liturgy, the St. Tikhon’s Community gathered together for the Annual Saint Nicholas Day Celebration. Following a potluck lunch, we enjoyed a visit from St. Nicholas who brought gifts of coins, candy, and oranges for all of the children!  His entrance to the party was marked by Seminary Dean, Fr. Steven Voytovich, and Professor of Church History, Dr. David Ford, leading the group in the singing of “O Who Loves Nicholas the Saintly.” St. Nick also donated some of his precious time by sitting for a photo with each of the children.

Leslie Patton, Rachel Hill, Seminarian Timothy Winegar, and several other Seminarians helped entertain the children with Christmas crafts and games. The music was a medley of live music from members of the community and extended community as well as recorded selections from the album “Please Joyne Us for Christmas” by Seminarian Matthew Joyner and his wife Ashley; and caroling, led by Maria Sheehan.

A wonderful time was had by all those present. Each year this event provides an important opportunity for the community to gather together for a fun time before finals week and Christmas break.

On behalf of the entire Saint Tikhon's community we would like to thank all of the people who volunteered their time and talent to make this event possible but especially for Sophia Pierce and Leslie Patton for planning and organising this truly spectacular holiday celebration.

On Friday, November 21, 2014, the St. Tikhon's Community was honored to receive Archimandrite Justin of Mt. Sinai.  Archimandrite Justin, who is the librarian of the Monastery of St. Catherine at Mt. Sinai, offered a fascinating presentation at the Metropolitan Museum in which he presented The Tabernacle of Ancient Israel as a Type of the Modern Orthodox Sanctuary.  He graciously agreed to answer questions after the lecture and shared some of his experiences living at the ancient monastery of St. Catherine. 

The St. Tikhon's community extends its warmest thanks to Archimandrite Justin for taking the time to share his experiences and knowledge.
