The Century Association, led by President Sarah Jubinski, hosted the annual St. Tatiana’s Luncheon on Thursday, January 28th. The luncheon meal was surpassed only by the wonderful deserts that had also been prepared! St. Tatiana, a second-century martyr, is the patron saint of students. This identification occurred in the context of the Empress Elizabeth founding the Moscow University on her feast day in 1755. St. Tatiana Chapel remains an integral part of that university today.
Sarah shared that the icon of St. Tatiana that resides in the dining hall was carried in 2009 by her, together with Mary Sernak, all the way from Russia to be presented to the Seminary! Sarah shared about the work of the Century Association, and a check totaling $6,000 was presented to the seminary as a first donation in the new year. Most all the Century Association Board and many members were present for the luncheon, and were photographed together.
Both Fr. Steven, Dean, and Seraphim Danckaert, Director of Mission Advancement expressed gratitude in receiving the Century Association Donation, presented by Sarah Jubinski and Archpriest Joseph Martin (Spiritual Advisor). For those who would like to join the Century Association, please see the Benefactor page. Each member contributes at least $100 to the association.
