St. Tikhon’s Seminary community celebrates the wonderful news that the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America, during its recent meeting, elevated Bishop Michael to the dignity of the rank of Archbishop. His Eminence, Archbishop Michael will celebrate in May the fifth anniversary of his consecration, and was elected Rector of St. Tikhon’s Seminary in October of 2013 also by the Holy Synod.
Grant, O Lord, a peaceful and prosperous life, health, salvation, and furtherance in all good things, unto Thy Servant, His Eminence, the Most Reverend Michael, Archbishop of New York and the Diocese of New York and New Jersey, and Rector of St. Tikhon’s Seminary, and protect and preserve him for many years!
