On Wednesday, May 14, 2014 members of the St. Tikhon’s Community along with His Eminence Archbishop Benjamin of San Francisco and the Diocese of the West offered prayers for the departed servant of God Metropolitan Leonty (Turkevich) on the 49th Anniversary of his repose.
St. Tikhon’s is pleased to announce at this time that an Academic Symposium dedicated to the life and work of Metropolitan Leonty (1876-1965) is being planned at St. Tikhon's Seminary on May 14, 2015, marking the 50th anniversary of his repose in the Lord. This will be a day-long program including a graveside memorial service such as the one depicted in the photo from this year.
St. Tikhon’s would also like to publically announce a call for proposed papers to be considered for the Syposium. Those interested are asked to please forward a brief summary of your proposed paper topic to Dr. David Ford, Professor of Church History at St. Tikhon's Seminary by no later than September 30, 2014 or contact him by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
