Saint Tikhon’s Seminary here will once again host its annual Vocations Retreat on Friday and Saturday, April 3-4, 2015. The encounter is designed specifically to help men discern their calling to serve the Lord and His Church in whatever capacity that He reveals.
St. Tikhon’s Seminary to host annual vocations retreat April 3-4

The theme of this year’s retreat will be “in the Fear of God and with Faith Draw Near.”

During the retreat, guests will have the opportunity to join with the seminary community and monastery brotherhood in prayer, tour the monastery and seminary grounds, hear talks and join in discussions, and meet Archpriest Dr. Steven Voytovich, Dean, and the seminary’s faculty and students.  The schedule will provide participants with the opportunity to consider very seriously their active role, purpose and responsibilities as members of the Body of Christ.  It also will provide a glimpse what a potential seminarian can expect to experience at Saint Tikhon’s as an active member of the community.

There is no cost to participate in the retreat.  To register, or to obtain more information, please contact the seminary at 570-561-1818 or

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
