On Saturday, September 12, 2020 – after months of eerie silence due to the pandemic, the Metropolia Center of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA burst to life, as the hierarchs, clergy, faithful and students marked the start of the new Academic Year at St. Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Theological Seminary.  To ensure the safety of those gathered and in accordance with social distancing restrictions, the Divine Liturgy took place outdoors, next to the Three Holy Hierarchs Seminary Chapel.
