2013 Wives, Faculty, and Staff Meet and Greet


The activities of the Saint Tikhon’s seminary wives are as varied as the group itself. Composed of the wives of the married students, faculty members, wives of faculty members, staff members and staff members’ wives, we are young and old, born Orthodox and convert, some of us have adult children, some of us have young children, some of us are employed outside the home and some are not, some of us home school our children and some of us send our children to school each morning. The thing that binds us together is that we are Orthodox Christian women whose husbands or who ourselves “live, teach, learn, and work” at Saint Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary.


At the beginning of each school year, we have a Meet and Greet activity where we formally meet our newest members; they meet us, the rector, the administrators, and faculty and staff members. Some of our other activities include coordinating the Saint Nicholas Day celebration, the pre-Lenten party, our own version of Meals-on-Wheels in which we provide meals for seminary families who have newborns or illnesses, children’s play group, our annual talent show, retreats, choir directing classes, meal exchanges, book club, clothing exchanges, monastery visits, church school retreats, and social activities where we have the opportunity to just relax and enjoy being in each other’s company. 


We are here together for just a short period of time and it is a time in which we face many challenges and, often, life-changing events, especially the one where our husbands are ordained! So for us, it is also a time to be spiritually nourished and to grow into the wife that God has intended us to be!
