Saint Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary will host its fall vocations retreat on Friday and Saturday, November 11-12, 2016.  The theme will be “Saint John Chrysostom: Champion of the Priesthood.”

“We look forward to celebrating the feast of Saint 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,” said Archpriest Steven Voytovich, STOTS Dean.  “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 Saint 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 will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, November 11 and conclude at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 12.  Meals and accommodations will be available at the seminary.  Participants are welcome to extend their stay through the weekend to attend Saturday evening’s Vigil and Sunday’s Divine Liturgy if their schedules permit.
