On Sunday, May 19th, the wives of the St. Tikhon's Seminary community gathered at the house of second year Seminarian Dan Kirk for a dinner honoring the wives of 2013 graduating class.
The event was very graciously hosted by Mrs. Anne Kirk. With typical aplomb, she set a beautiful table to which the women contributed some of their most delectable creations. Eight women were honored at the dinner. Seven wives of seminarians -- Mat. Veronika Baldwin, Mat. Elizabeth Brown, Mat. Lauren Huggins, Mat. Maria Mackay, Mat. Ruth McPherson, Mat. Patti Morrison, and Mat. Candy Watt -- as well as Simona Irime, the graduating female student.
Fr. Afanasy, from the St. Tikhon's brotherhood, came to speak for a final time to this group and sent them away with words of determination and encouragement. It was a fitting end to the time at seminary for a group of women distinguished by their hospitality and gracefulness, each of them beautiful examples of a Christian woman. Many Years!
