As Nativity comes to a close, the Orthodox Church rejoices with the Feast of Theophany and our annual Blessing of the Waters. 

This blessed feast is made more so this year with the ordination of our seminarian, Fr. Phillip Dage, to the Holy Priesthood.

Fr. Phillip was ordained during the Divine Liturgy at Holy Trinity Cathedral in Chicago, IL celebrated by His Eminence, Archbishop Daniel of Chicago and the Midwest. 

The St. Tikhon’s community is overjoyed to share a few precious moments from the ordination, and prays without ceasing for Fr. Phillip’s future ministry. May your life be filled with all the joys and sacrifices of a worthy ministry, and may God grant you many blessed years!
