On Wednesday, March 7, 2012 a group of visitors from Holy Resurrection of Christ Serbian Orthodox Church in Lebanon, PA arrived at the St. Tikhon’s Community for their annual Lenten Pilgrimage.
Led by Fr. Christopher Rocknage the faithful enjoyed a time of reflection and spiritual renewal.
The visitors were hosted to a tour of the seminary and monastery grounds as well as the museum and Icon Repository which houses the Guzey Icon Collection, which when it was entrusted to our care was one of the largest privately held icon collections in the country.
The group also had the opportunity to enjoy a delicious Lenten Meal in the recently remodeled seminary dining hall and share in a few words of encouragement from the Seminary’s Dean, Fr. Alexander Atty.
After returning home, one of the pilgrims took the time to send us a very caring and heartfelt thank you email through he parish priest who led the retreat in which she expressed;
"Father, it has always been a dream of mine to come here...and now that I have been able to, I am so thankful to God. It was like being in heaven!"
