The St. Tikhon's Community celebrated the feast of St. Patriarch Tikhon of Moscow on Wednesday, October 9, 2013. His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon, His Grace Bishop Michael, and His Grace Bishop Mark served a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy in the Monastery Church, after which, the community offered Many Years to Metropolitan Tikhon in celebration of his name's day.
Let us praise Tikhon, the patriarch of all Russia,
And enlightener of North America
An ardent follower of the Apostolic traditions,
And good pastor of the Church of Christ.
Who was elected by divine providence,
And laid down his life for his sheep.
Let us sing to him with faith and hope,
And ask for his hierarchical intercessions:
Keep the church in Russia in tranquility,
And the church in North America in peace.
Gather her scattered children into one flock,
Bring to repentance those who have renounced the True Faith,
Preserve our lands from civil strife,
And entreat God's peace for all people!
