His Eminence, Metropolitan Laurus, performed four tonsures to the small schema at Holy Trinity Cathedral on April 2, 2004, at the conclusion of matins for Lazarus Saturday. Hierodeacon Cyprian (Alexandrou), a native of Australia, who will be teaching New Testament Greek and English as a Foreign Language at Holy Trinity Seminary beginning in the 2004-2005 academic year, was tonsured retaining his former name. Rassaphore-monk Andrew (Lewis), a third-year seminarian from Canada, was tonsured with the name Savatii, in honor of St. Savatii of Solovki. Rassaphore-monk Peter (Jensen), a native of Denmark currently in the fourth year of seminary, was named Theophan in honor of St. Theophan the Recluse. Novice George (Perekrestov), an alumnus of Holy Trinity Seminary (class of 1977), was tonsured with the name Nicholas in honor of the Tsar-Martyr. At the conclusion of the service His Eminence addressed the newly-tonsured monks, reminding them of the difficult path they had chosen, and wishing them God's help in their ascetic undertaking.
