His Holiness Patriarch Kyrill Visits Saint Tikhon's University

On November 18, 2018, His Holiness Patriarch Kyrill of Moscow and All Russia presided over a formal ceremony at Saint Tikhon´s Orthodox University of the Humanities (STOUH).

The ceremony took place in the Conciliar Chamber of the former Moscow Eparchy House. It was attended by hierarchs and clergymen of the Russian Orthodox Church, and students and faculty members of Saint Tikhon´s University. His Holiness and all those present were welcomed with a speech by the Very Rev. Archpriest Vladimir Vorobyov, Dean of Saint Tikhon´s University.

In his address, Patriarch Kyrill noted that “it is the very desire to serve the Church, by solving the pressing challenges she faces, that has enabled Saint Tikhon´s University to develop and overcome the problems and growing pains that any new educational institution must inevitably confront. The University and the school for priests that operate within it have educated over a thousand clergy and over seven thousand highly-qualified professionals, including academics, university and school teachers, choirmasters, conservators, parish-level professionals, journalists, and members of other professions.”

It must be noted that Saint Tikhon´s University has been developing other forms of tuition, as well. Its distance-learning programmes have made Orthodox theological training and education  available to those who live in distant areas of Russia and abroad.

Also present at the ceremony to congratulate the University were the heads of theological schools, as well as the Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation.

After the Divine Liturgy, the Patriarch conferred awards on Saint Tikhon´s University teachers.

After a break, there was a performance by a joint choir consisting of STOUH members and the Bortnyansky Boys´ Chamber Choir.
