Romanian Archbishop of the Americas visits St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in New York

Monday, October 5th, 2015, His Eminence Nicolae, the Romanian Orthodox Archbishop in the Americas, visited Saint Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary from New York. His Eminence met with Very Rev. Fr. Chad Hatfield, the Chancellor of the Seminary and with Fr. Archdeacon Joseph Matusiak, Director of Admissions, and they talked about the activity of the Romanian students from the Seminary and about the future of the cooperation between St. Vladimir’s Seminary and the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese in the Americas.

“We are pleased with the activity of the Romanian students from St. Vladimir’s Seminary and we count on them as future missionaries in the Archdiocese’s parishes”, said His Eminence, Archbishop Nicolae at the end of the meeting.

Very Rev. Fr. Chad Hatfield, the Chancellor of this American theological school said that “the purpose of the relationship and the cooperation between the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese and St. Vladimir’s Seminary is to familiarize the Romanian students with the realities of American society and to prepare them to serve in the parishes of the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese in the Americas. This goal was reconfirmed today in the meeting that we had with His Eminence Archbishop Nicolae. I would like to point out that the education of the future priests of the Romanian Orthodox Archdiocese in the Americas is not an effort, but an investment in its future”.

The visit of His Eminence took place a few days after a unique event in the history of the Seminary: the first celebration of the Divine Liturgy in Romanian, in the “Holy Three Hierarchs” Chapel.
