STOTS to host annual vocations retreat April 11-12


Saint Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary here once again will host its annual Vocations Retreat on Friday, April 11 and Lazarus Saturday, April 12, 2014.  The encounter is designed specifically to help men discern their calling to serve the Lord and His Church in whatever capacity that He reveals.

The theme of this year’s retreat is “Responding to Jesus’ Call: ‘Be My Priest.’”

The retreat will begin with registration at 6:00 p.m. on Friday and conclude after the celebration of Saturday evening’s Vigil.  Over the course of the retreat, guests will join the seminary community and monastery brotherhood in prayer, tour the monastery grounds and the seminary campus, meet the seminary’s Dean, hear talks, and join in discussions.  The schedule will provide participants the opportunity to consider very seriously their active roles, purpose and responsibilities as members of the Body of Christ.  It will also provide a glimpse of what a potential seminarian can expect to experience at Saint Tikhon’s as an active member of the community.

There is no cost for participating in the retreat.  To register or obtain additional information, please call the seminary school at 570-561-1818 or send an e-mail to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
