Invest in the Future of the Church: Support St. Sophia Seminary on Giving Tuesday, November 29
Our Seminary is once again participating in the #GivingTuesday global charitable movement by encouraging the alumni, faculty, students, staff, clergy and all the faithful of the #UOCofUSA to kick-off the holiday gift-giving season with a donation to St. Sophia Seminary Fund. Giving Tuesday is the global day for giving back created in response to the commercialization and consumerism of the holiday season and as a reminder of the need to support nonprofit institutions like our own Seminary.
On November 29, 2016 charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to freely give and to promote generosity.
As the primary academic institution of the Church we have a lot to be grateful for. Numerous graduates of our St. Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Theological Seminary are serving the needs of Orthodox Christians and communities around the world. Our enrollment continues to grow as committed men and women heed the call to pick up their Cross and follow Christ.
Our Church's own #GivingTuesday efforts will support St. Sophia Theological Seminary; now with largest enrollment in more than a decade; expanded curriculum for men AND women; new distance learning component; the future of our Church; mentoring the committed men and women of the student body in their spiritual and academic formation. "Giving back to St. Sophia Seminary provides for scholarships, physical facility improvements and technology upgrades for current students, creating a better student experience for our future spiritual leaders," said Bishop Daniel, Dean of Student Life. "A gift of any amount can make a difference. Recently, we appealed through mailing to the membership of the Church to support our St. Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Theological Seminary, - now for the second time, Saint Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Theological Seminary is taking part in the global charitable movement - Giving Tuesday. Any gift, no matter the size, will help the Seminary thrive."
