Sunday, January 22, 2017 was observed as “Sanctity of Life Sunday” in Orthodox Christian parishes across the United States. The commemoration, which marks the 44th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in the U.S., served as a prelude to the annual March for Life, to be held at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, January 27.
Our seminary President, Archpriest Chad Hatfield, will be participating with many of our seminarians and their families in the annual March for Life. As we prepare for that day, we will be reflecting on the words of Metropolitan Tikhon, primate of the Orthodox Church in America, and spiritual head and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of our Seminary.
