On March 24 and 25, the St Tikhon's Community gathered together with His Grace Bishop David (Mahaffey) (STOTS 1997) to celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation of the Theotokos, with Vigil for the Feast on Monday evening followed by Divine Liturgy on Tuesday morning. This joyous Feast Day was made even more special for the St. Tikhon's Community by the presence of Bishop David, visiting from Alaska, and His Beatitude Metropolitan Herman, who was celebrating the 50th Anniversary of his Ordination to the Holy Priesthood. 

His Grace Bishop David is not only an alumnus of St. Tikhon's, he also taught at the school for 8 years. As a sign of the great love that the school holds for His Grace, and a show of support for him as he embarks upon his Archpastoral ministry as the newly-consecrated Bishop of Sitka and Alaska, a Panagia was given to His Grace on behalf of St. Tikhon's Seminary. Fr. Steven Voytovich, Dean of St. Tikhon's Seminary, asked that His Beatitude Metropolitan Herman present the Panagia, owing to their close relationship formed through years of mutual service to the school. 
 
The St. Tikhon's Community wishes a joyous Feast of the Annunciation to all!

Troparion

Today is the beginning of our salvation
The revelation of the eternal mystery! 
The Son of God becomes the Son of the Virgin
As Gabriel announces the coming of Grace.
Together with him let us cry to the Theotokos: 
Rejoice, O Full of Grace,
The Lord is with You!
 
Kontakion

O Victorious Leader of Triumphant Hosts!
We, your servants, delivered from evil, sing our grateful thanks to you, O Theotokos!
As you possess invincible might, set us free from every calamity 
So that we may sing: Rejoice, O unwedded Bride!
The Lord is with You!
