SVS has produced about 50 Orthodox hierarchs, and close to 1,000 priests and deacons, serving the church with approximately 900 laity (both women and men), among its alumni. Among the hierarchy are one patriarch, archbishops, and bishops, and several metropolitans.
St. Vladimir’s Seminary gained high praise as one of four honorees feted by the Crestwood Historical Society at a celebratory meeting held on the seminary campus Friday, October 17, 2008. Since 1962, SVS has been part of the City of Yonkers deemed by local residents as the “Crestwood neighborhood,” and the seminary’s contributions to the surrounding community were recognized not only by the historical society, but also by city, county, and state representatives during the evening’s celebration.
