On Saturday May 2, 2015, the St. Tikhon's Seminary Mission choir, together with V.Rev. Steven Voytovich, Dean of St. Tikhon's Seminary, visited St. Andrew Orthodox church in Baltimore, Maryland. The rector, Fr. Theodore Boback (STOTS 1972), and the parishioners of St. Andrew's have a long history of supporting the St. Tikhon's Community. Each year the mission choir looks forward to their yearly visit to St. Andrew’s, where they know that they will receive a warm welcome from the parish community.
This warm welcome was all-the-more remarkable as, at the time, the city of Baltimore was dealing with great deal of civil unrest, making getting in and out of the city very difficult. Despite all these and other obstacles the mission choir enjoyed a wonderful time of worship and fellowship with the good people at St. Andrew’s. During the service a prayer service was offered on behalf of the city of Baltimore and its inhabitants.
St. Tikhon's Seminary would like to thank Fr. Ted Boback and all of the parishioners and faithful of St. Andrew Orthodox Church for their support of the Seminary and for their gracious hospitality towards our St. Tikhon’s Mission Choir.
