Representation at the St. Herman's ConferenceA delegation from Holy Trinity Seminary was invited to attend the annual St. Herman's Youth Conference, held this year at St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Lakewood, NJ, to acquaint the assembled youth with the opportunity of studying at Seminary. On Saturday, December 25, 2004, Deacon Vladimir Tsurikov offered a presentation about the education the Seminary offers.
Fr. Vladimir was accompanied by seven seminarians, all of whom attended the conference talks, socialized and answered questions informally, and participated in the Divine Services. As a result, the assembled youth were able to become acquainted with several of our seminarians, who themselves were able to socialize with their peers.
The rector of Holy Trinity Seminary, Metopolitan Laurus, addressed all present at the cathedral of St. Alexander Nevsky after Divine Liturgy on December 26th and reminded all about the role the Seminary and Holy Trinity Monastery played in the inception of the annual St. Herman's conferences, which were held for years at Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, N.Y.
