On Saturday, 20 April 2024, St. Tikhon’s Monastery served Divine Liturgy commemorating the 90th anniversary of the repose of His Eminence, Metropolitan Platon – the first Metropolitan of the American Church, a key figure present at the restoration of the Patriarchate of the Russian Church, who’s body lies at rest at St. Tikhon’s Monastery.

This day brings many reasons for gratitude and remembrance, as it also saw seminarian – Fr. Seraphim Chang – ordained to the Holy Priesthood by the hand of His Beautitude, Metropolitan Tikhon. 

We ask your prayers for Fr. Seraphim and Mat. Ruth as they enter a life of sacrifice, service, and ministry to the Lord and his Church. May the Lord bless them and keep them for many blessed years.

Please enjoy a few moments from this beautiful ordination and memorial liturgy.
