Saint Tikhon’s Seminary will host a Fall Vocations Retreat on Friday and Saturday, November 11-12, 2016.  The theme will be “St. John Chrysostom: Champion of the Priesthood.” 

“We look forward to celebrating the feast of St. John Chrysostom this year by welcoming to campus men and women from throughout the country who are interested in exploring the teachings of this great Church Father,” Archpriest Dr. Steven Voytovich, Seminary Dean, said.  “His vision of the priesthood is inspiring to anyone who is thinking seriously about serving the Church in some capacity.”

During the retreat, participants will have the opportunity to join with the seminary community and monastery brotherhood in prayer, tour the monastery and seminary grounds, hear talks and join in discussions about ministry and St. John Chrysostom, and meet the seminary’s Dean, faculty, and students.  Both women and men are encouraged to attend.

There is no cost to participate in the retreat, which begins at 6:00 PM on Friday, November 11 and ends at 4:00 PM on Saturday, November 12.  Food and accommodations are available at the Seminary, and participants are welcome to extend their stay through the weekend to attend Saturday evening’s Vigil and Sunday’s Divine Liturgy if their schedule allows.  To register or to obtain more information, please contact the seminary at 570-561-1818, ext 101 or
