Many members of the local community came to South Canaan this weekend to participate in the annual Founders Day celebration commemorating St. Tikhon Patriarch of Moscow, Enlightener of North America, and founder of the holy habitation of St. Tikhon’s Monastery.
After the service a wonderful meal was offered in the monastery refectory that had been prepared by volunteers from the St. Tikhon’s Parish Community. St. Tikhon's would like to thank Mary Carol Ashley for her work in organizing the meal.
This joyous feast concluded with the Century Association holding its annual meeting in the seminary dining hall. The constant and steadfast support of the Century Association helps ensure that St. Tikhon’s Seminary continues to be able to fulfill its holy calling to educate and prepare the future leaders of the Orthodox Church, both in this country and around the world.
