Chad Hatfield, Chancellor, giving a retreat at St. George Cathedral, Charleston, WV, where Alumnus Fr. Olaf Scott serves as Dean.Our Chancellor/CEO Archpriest Chad Hatfield frequently travels around the country—preaching in parishes, teaching at other seminaries, touring with our Men's Choir, engaging in inter-Orthodox and ecumenical dialogue, and even leading missionary teams. It's his way of connecting with alumni, friends, donors, and potential students, informing them of what's happening at our school and receiving feedback as to how the seminary might better serve them and the Church at-large.

We hope you meet up with Fr. Chad if he visits your locale; he will warmly greet you. His schedule for 2012 is posted below.
