Very Rev. Archpriest Constantine Nasr will be the guest speaker at a Public Lecture at St. Tikhonâ€™s Seminary on Tuesday evening, April 7. His presentation is entitled: â€śOur Parish: A Complacent Community or a Mission Minded Church?â€ť The event will take place in the Seminary auditorium, beginning at 7 p.m., followed by refreshments and a question-and-answer discussion period. A cordial invitation to attend the lecture is extended to area clergy and laypersons interested in this topic so vital to the Church, as well as to the entire St. Tikhonâ€™s community.
