A choir from St Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary will be singing the responses to our Vigil service coming Saturday, April 2, beginning at 5:00 pm. A free dinner will be served after the service.
We have also received incredible news that the miraculous myrrh-streaming icon of St Anna will be with us during the service on Saturday at 5:00 pm for veneration!
We invite everyone to come and be with us to pray before this wonder-working image! Please invite friends for this great blessing!
Please remember to prayerfully consider giving a generous gift to St Tikhon’s Seminary. Read below on how you can help.
We are asking two things of everyone:
Please give a generous gift to support St Tikhon’s Seminary. Through the leadership of Fr John Parker, they have done a tremendous job in maintaining a traditional education for a growing number of young men and women who desire to serve the church. We are asking each household to consider a giving generous gift to support the work of theological education. Can you give $50? $100? $250? $500? Please give as you are prayerfully able.
You can give securely and immediately online at https://orthodoxpittsburgh.org/support. If you are giving online, please use the notation at “Any notes regarding donation (optional):” and notate your donation “St Tikhon’s.”
If you wish to give in person, please bring your check on Saturday and make it out to St Nicholas Orthodox Church and notate the check as “St Tikhon’s.” We will present the total gift to the seminarians at the end of the service on Saturday. Please give your gift as soon as possible.
Please attend on Saturday night beginning at 5:00 pm. We know that some of you have never attended at Saturday evening service. Please consider coming this Saturday. This is the perfect service to introduce you to Saturday evening worship, and it’s also a perfect time to bring a guest. You will be amazed at the beauty of this service. You will not want to miss the beautiful singing of this 14 voice all-male choir!
The choir will be directed by Benedict Sheehan. Benedict is quickly becoming one of the most distinugished Orthodox composers in the world. His composition The Divine Liturgy of St John Chrysostom was recently nominated for a Grammy award.
