Pilgrimage to St. Tikhon's - 05/26/08

On Monday, May 26th, a small contingent from the Mission made its way to St. Tikhon's Orthodox Monastery in South Canaan, Pennsylvania, for the annual Memorial Day Pilgrimage.

Following the Hierarchical Divine Liturgy and Memorial Service, we were able to venerate the miraculous Kursk-Root Icon of the Mother of God and the relics of St. Seraphim of Sarov. After a picnic style lunch we toured the museum dedicated to Orthodoxy in America and visited the seminary bookstore before heading home to Delmarva.

Glory be to God for a safe and enjoyable pilgrimage to St. Tikhon's Monastery!
