On Saturday July 7, 2012 a recently renovated classroom was blessed in memory of the Right Reverend John Skvir (STOTS 1943), a seminary alumnus, dedicated churchman, and devoted pastor.
The classroom renovation was donated by Mrs. Elsie Skvir Nierle.
Father Daniel Skvir, son of the late Fr. John Skvir, celebrated a small blessing service followed by remarks both by he and Fr. Alexander Atty, Dean of St. Tikhon's Seminary. On behalf of the seminary community, Fr. Alexander thanked Elsie and the Skvir family for their generosity and love for the seminary.
May Father John's memory be eternal!
