His Eminence, Archbishop Michael, Rector of St Tikhon’s Orhtodox Theological Seminary delivered the 37th Annual Schmemann Lecture at St Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary on Thursday, January 30, the altar feast of Three Hierarchs Chapel.  This year’s theme, inaugurated at St Tikhon’s during the 2019 October Lecture series, was Autocephaly: 50 Years.  Archbishop Michael’s Keynote Lecture, “The Gift of Autocephaly” will be available at Ancient Faith Radio shortly.  St Tikhon’s Dean, Archpriest John Parker, gave one of three workshop lectures earlier in the day. His lecture, “Autocephaly and Evangelism” will also be posted on AFR.  Many thanks to Seminary President, Archpriest Chad Hatfield, for the generous invitations to St Tikhon’s leadership.  And we offer our congratulations to our Sister Seminary on their Patronal Feast, and for a successful and edifying day.
