His Grace, the Right Reverend Thomas, Bishop of Charleston, Oakland and the Mid-Atlantic visited St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary on Tuesday, November 18, 2014. His Grace has been a long-time supporter of St. Tikhon’s and came to visit with the students as well as to meet with Fr. Steven Voytovich, Seminary Dean.
While here, His Grace also took a tour of the Seminary and Monastery and spoke to the student body during the lunch hour. During the talk he announced “I always enjoy coming to St. Tikhon’s because every time I visit I see people who are filled with joy!” He continued by reminding those assembled of the importance of remaining joyful, and then instructed them to take that same joy out into the world and be ambassadors for Christ.
