Friends and supporters of His Eminence Archbishop Michael and St. Tikhon's Seminary

As we approach the 50th anniversary of Archbishop Michael's priestly ordination, we are reminded of his many years of dedicated service to the Lord and to the Church. Despite facing unimaginable loss and hardship early in his ministry, Archbishop Michael has remained unwavering in his commitment to serve. One particularly poignant moment in his journey came when, after a terrible automobile accident left him in a coma for three months and took the life of his young bride, his own bishop blessed him to continue his education and provided for the cost of his studies. This act of kindness and generosity allowed Archbishop Michael to continue his journey of service to the Lord, and he has never forgotten it. In fact, he has made it his mission to pay this kindness forward, offering support and assistance to other clergy and seminarians in need.

As we celebrate this important milestone in Archbishop Michael's ministry, we invite you to join us in supporting the vital work of St. Tikhon's Seminary. Your contribution will help to ensure that our students have the resources and support they need to succeed, and that the Orthodox Church in America continues to thrive and grow.

Please consider making a generous contribution today, and help us to support His Eminence Archbishop Michael and the essential work of St. Tikhon's Seminary. Your generosity will make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students and faculty, and will help to ensure that the next generation of clergy and lay leaders are trained in the rich traditions of the Orthodox Church. Thank you for your commitment to this important work.
