Father Nicodemus Giving a Tour of The Church

This weekend was a whirlwind! Father John took some of our parishioners to Saint Tikhon's Monastery and Seminary on a pilgrimage for a long weekend. The Three and I drove up to visit our parents and got to go to church on Saturday with my father-in-law at his parish and my mom and dad at their parish for Liturgy on Sunday. On Monday morning, I packed up the little ones and we headed out to meet Papa at Saint Tikhon's. I had the chance to go to Confession to Bishop Tikhon (my spiritual father) and buy a few books at the bookstore. We also went on a tour of the museum and Church. Father Nicodemus had so much to share with us and we were in awe of Saint Nikolai of Zicha's vestments, Saint Innocent's translation of the Holy Bible into Aleutian, and all of the other beautiful artifacts of Orthodoxy in America.

What a small world! My husband is actually a seminarian there now. He actually directed choir at St Tikhon's Monday morning. He said the singing was pretty rough that day. :)

When was your husband a student there?
