We were blessed to have with us, on the grounds of St.
Tikhonâ€™s seminary and monastery, close to one hundred pilgrims belonging to two
parishes of the Indian Orthodox Church.
Parishioners from St. Mary's Church from W.Sayville, NY with
its vicar V.Rev. Paulose Adai Chorepiscopa, and St. Gregorios Church from
Yonkers, NY with its vicar, Rev.Fr. Philip C. Abraham, arrived at the seminary
on April 2nd at 10 am.
After opening prayers in the auditorium, they were treated
to a moving and heart-felt devotional by Rev. Dn. Daniel Mackay on the
importance of Orthodox Spirituality in our everyday life.
The group was then given a tour of the seminary building and
grounds followed by Noon prayer, lunch and a tour of the Monastery Church, it's
grounds, the museum and the bookstore.
