Axios! Seminarian Joel Brady is Tonsured a Reader

On Saturday, May 23, 2015 Seminarian Joel Brady was tonsured a Reader by His Beatitude Metropolitan Tikhon at St. Tikhon's Monastery Chapel as part of the Memorial Day Pilgrimage service on Pilgrimage Saturday. Later that day Reader Joel would also graduate Valedictorian of the graduating Class of 2015.

As a seminarian Reader Joel exemplified what it means to be a model student and servant in Christ. He was active in student government, maintained constant participation at both the Holy Services and Community Events, and was ever vigilant of his community stewardship responsibilities. During his final year the additional responsibility of being one of the two dormitory RA's was placed upon him, a responsibility that was accepted graciously with a profound humility.

On behalf of the entire community we would like to thank the Reader Joel Brady for his service to St. Tikhon's and pray that God continues to bless and keep him as he begins this next phase of his public ministry.
