St. Tikhon’s Century Association held its annual luncheon at the Seminary on Thursday, January 23rd, 2014 in honor of St. Tatiana of Rome, the patron saint of students.
Thank you to Sarah Jubinski, President of the Association. Sarah was joined by fellow officers and board members Mary Sernak, Mat. Dorothy Sulich, Elsie Herman, Robert Roth, Alexandra Fedorchak and several Century Association members from the community who were responsible for the delicious dessert table that was enjoyed by students, their families, faculty, staff and guests. A very special thank you to Archpriest Joseph Martin, Spiritual Advisor for the Association, for preparing the meal of sausage and peppers as he does each and every year.
Fr. Ian Shipley (STOTS 2012), pastor of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Bethlehem, PA and proud member of the Century Association gave a moving reflection on the Troparion of the Feast of St. Tatiana and the vital role that sacrifice plays in the theological life of the Church.
The event ended with a check presentation in the amount of $8000.00 by Mrs. Jubinski and Association officers to Fr. Steven Voytovich, Seminary Dean. Fr. Steven, the organization's newest member, thanked the Century Association for all they do to support the St. Tikhon’s Community and Orthodox Theological Education. He also encouraged those attending to consider becoming members themselves and to invite their families and friends to join with them in becoming members so that together we may all continue the giving legacy that the Century Association has maintained for over 40 years.
