Abbot of Vatopedi talks to STOTS Students
Elder Ephraim Graciously Granted a Spiritual Talk to STOTS Students

This past Friday afternoon (October 30, 2020), students, faculty, and alumni from St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological seminary enjoyed the rare privilege of a one-on-one video dialogue with Elder Ephraim of Vatopedi Monastery on Mount Athos. This event marked the first time that an English speaking group was granted this amazing opportunity. After sharing some inspiring words of wisdom about the priesthood, the holy elder opened the floor to questions. 

Many of the attendees from St. Tikhon’s were chosen to speak with Elder Ephraim face-to-face, each receiving his full and loving attention. The questions ran the gamut from deeply personal to broadly societal, but regardless of their initial starting point, everyone in attendance walked away having received their own personal word from the Holy Mountain.
