On Thursday, May 11, 2011, Fr. Pavlos, a priest-monk from St. Catherine's Monastery on Mount Sinai, with over 40 years experience as a monastic, gave an informal talk to our seminary community during Bright Season. Since Fr. Pavlos spoke in Greek, Fr. Nathanael Symeonides, from Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in New York City, served as translator for the evening, and we are grateful for his facilitation of our conversation with Fr. Pavlos.
This recording of the Paschal hymn, "The Angel Cried to the Lady Full of Grace," is sung by the 1995 St Vladimir's Seminary Octet and is included in the CD, "O Champion Leader." The 1995 Octet was directed by then seminarian and now priest, The Rev. Dr. J. Sergius Halvorsen, currently Assistant Professor of Homiletics and Rhetoric at St. Vladimir's Seminary.
