On Tuesday, December 6th, the St. Tikhon's Community came together to celebrate the feast of St. Nicholas of Myra in Lycia.
This year besides the traditional honoring of this most beloved hero of the Church, the faithful were also blessed to witness Bishop Tikhon blessing the new reliquary purchased for the monastery church by the Society of Friends to house the relics of St. Seraphim of Sarov.
In the evening a large number of the community gathered for what has become one of the more well attended events of the academic year. The children played games, the adults sang seasonal music, and everyone had a wonderful time.
A special thanks to Katherine Atty-Brasowski for coordinating the event, for Nick Aiello for once again playing the part of St. Nicholas, as well as Anna Halliwell for being St. Nick's assistant, and to everyone who lent their support.
