Priest Ignatius Gauvain Awarded the Kamilavka

On September 8, 2021, the Feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos, His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon awarded the kamilavka to Fr. Ignatius Gauvain, Director of Student Life at St. Tikhon’s Seminary. 

The Liturgy was concelebrated by His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon and His Grace Bishop Alexis of Bethesda, Locum Tenens of the Diocese of Sitka and Alaska. Serving with them were Archimandrite Sergius, Abbot of St. Tikhon’s Monastery, and Fr. John Parker, Dean of St. Tikhon’s Seminary, along with other priests and deacons. In bestowing the award upon Fr. Ignatius, His Beatitude commended him for his years of service in the Holy Priesthood and for his tireless work and effort given to St. Tikhon’s Seminary. 

Congratulations and many years to Fr. Ignatius, who is truly worthy of this award. Thank you for your labors of love that help make possible the continuing formation of servant leaders in Christ’s Church. AXIOS!
