Seraphim O'Keefe

My degree program: M.Div.


My home: Richmond, VA


My home parish: St. Cyprian of Carthage Orthodox Church, Richmond, VA


My background: 

I was a full time iconographer.

What brought me to seminary: 

This decision took place very gradually, in ways that I do not understand. Father Gerasim (Eliel) especially encouraged me through the difficult parts of this process.

Why I chose St. Vladimir’s: 

Of the various seminaries I considered, St. Vladimir’s was the most welcoming and and encouraging towards me.
