Resolution 1: Seminary Support

From the 16th All American Council, Orthodox Church in America, November 2011

Submitted by St Vladimir's Seminary, with unanimous approval of the SVOTS Board of Trustees, May 2011

WHEREAS the Orthodox Church in America no longer supports the seminaries of the OCA through a special appeal or as a line item in the budget, and

WHEREAS the three seminaries of the OCA are the primary institutions for the formation of future priests and centers for theological education for both clergy and lay leadership,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that this All-American Council encourages each OCA parish and mission to support the seminary of its choice through a sacrificial gift of 1% minimum of its annual operating budget.
