St. Tikhon’s Century Association held its annual luncheon at the Seminary on Thursday, January 29, 2015 in honor of St. Tatiana of Rome, the patron saint of students.
Joining the student body was His Grace, Bishop Michael, Seminary Rector; His Grace, Bishop Mark; V. Rev. Steven Voytovich, Seminary Dean; members of the faculty and staff and Century Association members. Representing the Century Association was president Sarah Jubinsky, together with Mary Sernak, Mat. Dorothy Sulich, Kay Fedorko, Jim and Rosalie Luster, John Kutchmanik, V. Rev. Joseph and Matushka Gloria Martin, Elizabeth Dutko, Robert Roth, Alexandra Fedorchak. With them they brought a delicious dessert table that was enjoyed by everyone present. A very special thank you to Archpriest Joseph Martin, Spiritual Advisor for the Association, for preparing the meal of sausage and peppers as he does each and every year.
After the meal, Fr. Steven asked each of the Association members to stand up and introduce themselves to the students. Sarah Jubinski explained to the Seminarians what the Century Association is and how they support the school. She also gave a brief history of St. Tatiana and her role as patron Saint of students, after which the Troparion and Kontakion to St. Tatiana was sung. His Grace, Bishop Michael, thanked the Century Association for their long history of support to the school, and encouraged the Seminarians to remember the organization in their prayers during their time here and after they have graduated.
The event ended with a check presentation in the amount of $9000.00 by Mrs. Jubinski and Association officers to Fr. Steven. Fr. Steven thanked the Century Association for all they do to support the St. Tikhon’s Community and Orthodox Theological Education. Sarah encouraged those attending to consider becoming members themselves and to invite their families and friends to join with them in becoming members so that together we may all continue the giving legacy that the Century Association has maintained for over 40 years.
