This notification was sent out to the entire St. Tikhon's Community last night by His Grace Bishop Tikhon:
Dear Members of the St Tikhon's Seminary Community,
Christ is in our midst.
I was informed this evening by Fr Victor Gorodenchuk of the tragic repose of Taisia Drobish. She was walking with her son, Alexander, when she was struck by a swerving car. She was pronounced dead at the scene and Alexander (who is 2 or 3 years old) was taken to the hospital. He is being monitored and appears to be in stable condition at this point.
Taisia is the wife of a former St Tikhon's seminarian, Daniel Drobish.
I would ask you to remember the handmaiden of God, Taisia, in your prayers, so that the merciful Lord will grant her eternal rest and a blessed entrance into paradise. Please pray also for Daniel and his family, that they may granted consolation and strength during this time of sorrow.
We will keep you updated with other information as it becomes available.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
His Grace will be serving a Panikhida for Taisia (Terry) Drobish this morning in the Seminary Chapel.
