Holy Trinity Seminary to Host an Alumni Gathering
Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary cordially invites the alumni of the Seminary to join the Seminary and Monastery community in the celebration of the patronal feast of our school – the feast of Three Hierarchs and Ecumenical Teachers, SS Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian, and John Chrysostom.
ALL of the HTOS graduates are invited to come for a three-day pilgrimage to the Holy Trinity Monastery (February 10-12), during which they will have an opportunity to sit in on classes, to tour the newly-opened Museum of the Foundation of Russian History, to meet the current generation of seminarians and faculty, to find out for themselves about the current vision and mission of the Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary. The alumni event will conclude on February 11-12, 2015, with the celebration of the Festal Vigil and Divine Liturgy for the feast of the Three Hierarchs.
If you would like to take part in this event, please let us know of your intention to come by email firstname.lastname@example.org, NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 6, 2015. All of the alumni are offered free lodging at the Monastery Guesthouse or at the Monastery and free meals at the Monastery refectory (however, voluntary donations are always welcome!).
