Ordination of John Kennerk alongside St. Tikhon’s Alumni!

John Kennerk, a second-year student at St. Tikhon’s Seminary, was ordained to the Holy Diaconate by His Grace, Bishop Paul, on Sunday, January 10th, at Christ the Savior Church in Chicago, Illinois.

Concelebrating with Bishop Paul was Fr. John Baker (STS Class of 2004), Rector of Christ the Savior, Dn. Theophan Warren (STS Class of 2015), deacon attached to the parish, and Dn. Alexander Koranda, (STS Class of 2014), assigned to St. George Cathedral also in Chicago.  The photo of three deacons, two recent graduates and one current student from St. Tikhon's, is truly incredible!

May God grant many years to Dn. John and Matushka Michelle as they return to St. Tikhon’s for the upcoming Spring semester, and to our alumni in their service in our Lord's vineyard!
