Deacon Peter Simko Ordained a Priest

On the joyous feast of the Entrance of the Holy Theotokos (Nov. 21, 2020), Deacon Peter Simko was elevated to the Holy Priesthood as Presbyter Panayiotis. Father Peter was ordained by His Grace, Bishop Alexis of Bethesda, locum tenens of the Diocese of Sitka and Alaska at Saint Tikhon’s Monastery. He was joined by his family and the local seminary and monastery communities. 

Father Peter is set to graduate in spring 2021 and plans to return to his home Diocese of the Midwest under His Eminence, Archbishop Paul.
