Students from St. Tikhon’s Seminary and St. Vladimir’s Seminary gathered together on the morning of February 23, 2019 at The Vineyard Center in Honesdale, PA to play an exhibition game of basketball. This fun tradition occurs every year between the sister seminaries, with each school taking its turn hosting. This year’s game had to be relocated to a near-by gym, since the St. Tikhon’s gymnasium is currently being renovated.
STOTS Dean Fr. John Parker was on hand to give the opening blessing and to cheer on the players. Several students and their families, as well as STOTS faculty, helped encourage our dedicated players to do their best. Professor Dr. David Ford was our jovial cheerleader and kept the crowd pumped up.
Although St. Tikhon’s lost, 47-32, we hope to come back strong and pull out a win next year. After the game, everyone enjoyed fellowship, with pizza and drinks provided by St. Tikhon’s Seminary. We wish to thank all those who came out from St. Vladimir’s Seminary to make it an enjoyable day.
