On Saturday, February 10, Deacon Mark Solomon was ordained to the Holy Priesthood and Nicholas Johnson to the Holy Diaconate by His Eminence, Archbishop Michael of New York and New Jersey at the St. Tikhon’s Monastery Church.

Father Mark is a third-year student at St. Tikhon’s Seminary, and Father Deacon Nicholas is a second-year student. The St. Tikhon’s community offers its sincere prayers for their ministries, and may God grant them many years!

Please enjoy this collection of moments from a memorable day in the lives of these two faithful men.
