On Sunday, 4 December, 2005, Bishop Tikhon, Seminary Rector, tonsured two seminarians as Readers. Paul Scott of Wilmington, DE, and John Barnes of Miami, FL, were installed, prior to the Hierarchal Divine Liturgy, by His Grace into the first of the two "minor" Holy Orders. This event was Reader Paul and Reader John's initiation into the ranks of Orthodox Clergy, a "first step" to becoming a priest in the Orthodox Church. May God grant them many, many years! Axios! Axios! Axios!
