St Vladimir Thanksgiving Feast, 2015St Vladimir Thanksgiving Feast, 2015Students, faculty, staff, trustees and visitors at St. Vladimir's share food and fellowship all year long; at our annual Thanksgiving Feast and in our weekly Sunday potlucks; through our Lenten gatherings after Presanctified Liturgies and when St. Nicholas pays his annual visit to our community; in the evening hours when we swap babysitting services and serve together in ministry to the homeless of New York City. Living side by side is both challenging and rewarding.

Metropolitan Tikhon Joins Community for Three Hierarchs Feast

30 January 2015 • On-Campus

Let us who love their words come together with hymns
and honor the three great torch–bearers of the triune Godhead:
Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian and John Chrysostom.
These men have enlightened the world with the rays of their divine
They are flowing rivers of wisdom,
and have filled all creation with springs of heavenly knowledge.
They ceaselessly intercede for us
before the holy Trinity!

January 22, 2015 marked the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the historic Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion-on-demand in the United States. Every year hundreds of thousands of people gather for the March for Life in Washington D.C. for a peaceful protest that calls for an end to legalized abortion, and advocates for a culture of life. It has become a tradition each year for the St. Ambrose Society, St. Vladimir's pro-life student group, to rent a bus to transport seminarians, their families, and members of the wider Orthodox community, down to the March.
