On Saturday, March 8, 2014, Panimatka Linda Oryhon from The Protection of the Holy Theotokos Cathedral in Allentown, PA visited the seminarian wives at a gathering hosted by Kristi Mackey. She is the wife of Fr. Myron Oryhon of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA. Her candid discussion of her history in over 30 years of ministry was warm, enlightening and uplifting.
As our seminarians' wives look forward to their own futures working side-by-side with their husbands in ministry to the Church, it is often a daunting endeavor. Hearing from someone who has learned lessons, sometimes hard ones, helps to better prepare for what lies ahead. Pani Linda discussed how to balance service to the Church, family life as well as personal spiritual growth in the midst of her role. We are grateful for her time and message.
