St. Tikhon’s Seminary joyfully announces an ordination for the diocese of our surrounding region.

Fr. Kirill Zawatski of the Diocese of Eastern Pennsylvania was ordained this past Saturday, 27 January 2024 at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. His Eminence, Archbishop Mark of Philadephia and Eastern Pennsylvania celebrated Divine Liturgy with a filled nave in attendance to witness this previous moment. Fr. Kirill served the most holy Eucharist to his community for the first time during a service we will not soon forget.

The St. Tikhon’s community offers its steadfast prayers to Fr. Kirill as he enters into a life of loving sacrifice for the life of the world. May the Lord bless you and keep you for many, many years.
