Met Tikhon

Today—Friday, July 15, 2016—marks the 50th birthday of His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon!

Metropolitan Tikhon was born in 1966, the eldest of three children born to Francois and Elizabeth Mollard.  His complete biography may be read here.

On behalf of the Holy Synod of Bishops and the clergy, monastics and faithful of the Orthodox Church in America, we assure Metropolitan Tikhon of our ongoing love and prayers today and in the many years to come.  May our Lord continue to grant him peace, prosperity, safety, honor, health and length of days “rightly dividing” the word of God’s truth as he marks this milestone in his life.

Axios!  Eis polla eti despota!  May God grant you many years, Your Beatitude!
