On Thursday April 16, 2015 the St. Nicholai Velemorovich Chapel located inside St. Tikhon’s Seminary was remodeled with a beautiful new hardwood floor and carpeting due to the generosity of Dr. Nabil a longtime supporter of St. Tikhon’s Monastery and Seminary who donated the hardwood flooring in the hopes that it would be used for just such purposes.
The cost of the installation of the flooring and the new carpet were donated by St. Tikhon’s Monastery. The hardwood is of an exceptional quality and should serve the seminary community for years to come. An alumnus who graduated in the early 70’s and has personally witnessed the transformation of the space from a library to a chapel remarked “I did a few petitions and the acoustics are so different its like being in a whole new place.”
Many thanks are due to Dr. Nabil for his donation and also to Abbot Sergius and the St. Tikhon’s Monastic Brotherhood for their continued and ever-present support of St. Tikhon’s Seminary.
