On Wednesday March 2, the St. Tikhon's Seminary Community underwent an extensive deep cleansing in preparation for the beginning of the great fast this year. As encouraged by our new dean and pastor in his pre-Lenten address, we began this journey not only body, mind and spirit but also in the collective offering of our time and energies into the cleansing of our seminary grounds.
Every student, faculty and staff member, as well as Fr. Atty himself, participated in this historic event as we removed two 30-yard construction dumpsters worth of materials and then an eventual third dumpster sized load was hauled out in small sections in the backs of a pick-up trucks. Even some of our Alumni were gracious enough to assist in the endeavor.
We would like to thank everyone who helped make this long overdue cleansing a reality. We could not have hoped for a more fresh and earnest start to this shared time of renewal.
