Seminary Pilgrimage - Day 1
April 9, 2013
On April 9, 2013, eight seminarians from Christ the Saviour Seminary, accompanied by the Very Rev. Jonathan Tobias began a week pilgrimage to St John the Compassionate Mission. This trip was part of a credited course in Orthodox Missiology, designed to expose the students to the multifaceted ministries of the Mission.
Arriving in the early evening, the seminarians were greeted at the Mission by Deacon Pawel Mucha, the prefect of the Lived Theology School. After a brief tour of the Mission complex, the Seminarians retired to Lourmel House, the home of the Lived Theology School, where they will find lodging during their stay. They were treated to a delicious Lenten supper.
The posted photos show scenes from the first day of their journey of faith and service.
