Seminarians minister at Nativity services on Kodiak Island - 01/07/11

While Nativity break traditionally is a chance to return to visit family after a busy fall semester, for most of our seminarians it was an opportunity to minister to the Orthodox communities on Kodiak Island, as well as having a chance for their families to experience our villages' festal hospitality. Deacon Andrew Wasillie and seminarian Ephrim Smith accompanied Fr. Juvenaly to Port Lions. Deacon Michael Nicolai and seminarian John Askoak went with Fr. John Dunlop to Ouzinkie. Remaining to serve in Kodiak with Fr. Innocent Dresdow were seminary instructor Dn. Irenaios Anderson and seminarians Nathan Anderson, Jason Isaac, and Jonathan Sawyer. We thank the communities of Port Lions and Ouzinkie for their hospitality and giving our seminarians the opportunity for service. Christ is born! Glorify Him!
