This past Monday, 04 December, our seminarian families concluded another beautiful Vespers service – joining together back at the seminary to kick off our annual St. Nicholas Day Party!

The annual celebration has become a mainstay of family life here at St. Tikhon’s, and gives our seminarian parents and their children the opportunity to welcome in the holidays by celebrating the Blessed Feast Day of St. Nicholas with an evening of food and fun activities.

His Eminence, Archbishop Michael, seized the opportunity to spend some precious and memorable time with the kids who inspire their fathers and mothers through these challenging years of study. This year’s party will be remembered as one of the best in memory, and was a welcome reminder of the joyful things just beneath the surface of all we work to accomplish.

The St. Tikhon’s community wishes you all a blessed and joyful holiday – and many, many more!
