[STOTS Communications, South Canaan, PA] On the Feast of the Holy Cross in Great Lent, St. Tikhon's Seminary Mission Choir visited St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Allison Park, PA, singing the responses for the Vigil on Saturday night and at the Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning. Seraphim Danckaert, Director of Mission Advancement, was one of the presenters at a retreat held at the cathedral earlier in the day on Saturday. (You can view this story here.)
Archpriest Michael Senyo, Dean of the Cathedral, welcomed the choir, and His Eminence, Melchisedek, Archbishop of Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania, attended the Vigil on Saturday night. Following the Vigil, clergy and members of the cathedral community joined the Mission Choir members for an evening of fellowship at the home of Protodeacon Michael Wusylko, a long-time member of the Board of Trustees of St. Tikhon's Seminary, and Matushka Mary Wusylko.
"We are grateful to the clergy and faithful of the cathedral for their long-standing love, hospitality, and support of the seminarians at St. Tikhon's," Archpriest Steven Voytovich, Dean of St. Tikhon's Seminary, said. "It was a great blessing to visit with them again, to spend time together in prayer, and to enjoy fellowship."
May God grant Archpriest Michael, Protodeacon Michael, and cathedral faithful many blessed years!
