Start Date

St. Vladimir's Seminary hears you. You want to know what the Seminary is doing to make sure the next leader at your parish is being formed and educated the right way, because their future ministry will affect you, your family, and your church. That's why we want you to hear face-to-face how we are raising up servants for the Orthodox Church—and why we have "doubled down" on our commitment to residential life for our seminarians. Of course, YOU are the reason this commitment to your future church leaders is possible. Consider becoming a sponsor, and let's take on this important work together.

Big Hats Flyer

Join the party in Fort Worth Texas, as St. Vladimir’s Seminary rolls out western-inspired food stations and music by Uptown Drifters to help raise support for the next generation of Church leaders. The River Ranch Stockyards will host the Big Hats & Cocktails fundraiser, which will also feature inspiration from Seminary President Archpriest Chad Hatfield, Trustee Priest Philip LeMasters, and Priest Jason Foster. Alumnus Priest Photius Avant will serve as emcee.

The evening kicks off at 5 p.m. Tickets and sponsorships may be purchased below. Questions? Email
