St. Tikhon’s Seminary received word early on Sunday, July 2nd, that Protodeacon Gregory Hatrack (STOTS, 1994) reposed in the Lord on the evening of July 1st. He was only 46 years old.

Dn. Gregory came to seminary from Sts. Peter and Paul Church, Minersville, PA, and graduated during the same Memorial Day weekend that St. Alexis was canonized. 

Dn. Gregory served as Bookstore Manager for St. Tikhon’s Seminary/Monastery for many years.  More recently he has served as Director of Marketing and Operations for St. Vladimir’s Seminary Press and Bookstore.

He married his wife Robyn (Alexander) on October 19, 2008.  Gregory was ordained to the Holy Diaconate by then Bishop Tikhon, on Sunday, September 26, 2010, at his home parish of Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Minersville, PA during the parish’s 100th anniversary celebration. (See photo)

Matushka Robyn began serving in 2016 as Director of Hospitality and Alumni Relations at St. Vladimir’s Seminary. Most recently Deacon Gregory was elevated to Protodeacon on May 23, 2017.

Memory eternal to the newly departed servant of God, Protodeacon Gregory.  This posting will be updated as arrangements are announced.
