On Friday, September 4, 2020, His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon spoke at the annual retreat at Saint Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary. This retreat precedes the beginning of each school year, and usually involves both seminarians as well as alumni. This year, due to the health restrictions, it was for seminarians only. His Beatitude gave three talks, the first on seminary life, the Coronavirus, and obedience and the spiritual life, the second on diakonia or service in the Church, and the third on the Priesthood.

On Tuesday, September 8, 2020, His Beatitude spoke to the seminarians at Saint Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary via Zoom. His Beatitude spoke again on seminary life and the spiritual life, with reference to the current pandemic situation. A photo gallery can be viewed on the OCA website and Facebook page.
As Metropolitan of the Orthodox Church in America, His Beatitude is the ruling hierarch of both stavropegial seminaries, as well as the President of Saint Tikhon’s and Chairman of Saint Vladimir’s Boards of Trustees. Because of this, His Beatitude plans to celebrate the Divine Liturgy at both seminaries later this semester.
Many years to the seminarians who are undertaking their sacred studies and formation this academic year, and to the faculty, staff, alumni, supporters, and friends of our Orthodox Christian seminaries!
