Metropolitan PHILIP delivers the commencment address at the 64th Annual Commencement of St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Seminary


On Saturday May 26, 2007, His Eminence Metropolitan PHILIP attended the 64th Annual Commencement of St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, where he delivered the commencement address to the graduating students. In addition, he was awarded the Honorary Doctor of Divinty degree by St. Tikhon’s Seminary. The yearbook this year was dedicated to His Eminence (read the dedication here). His Eminence was greeted by His Beatitude HERMAN, the primate of the Orthodox Church in America. It was truly a memorable day, and it was a blessing for His Eminence to be present at this wonderful occasion, as it was a blessing for all those in attendance to welcome him. The Antiochian students who graduated from St. Tikhon were Fr. George Shawareb (Oklahoma City, OK) and Fr. Andrew Damick (Raleigh, NC).. We extend our prayers and good wishes for their new ministries to the Church.
