Dear Friends and Supporters!
Many wonderful things are happening at Holy Trinity Theological Seminary in Jordanville, and the pace is picking up like never before!
- This year 2021-22 we have enrolled an unprecedented number of exceptionally qualified and enthusiastic students, so that on-campus housing is now filled to capacity, which will soon necessitate additional space.
- Many facets of the HTS curriculum are now under review with the aim of optimally responding to the evolving needs of today’s Orthodox seminary education and pedagogy.
- Institutional accreditation with the NY State Board of Education is being officially sustained, thereby confirming our program’s true excellence at both the undergraduate (B.Th.) and graduate (M.Div.) levels.
- The HTS faculty is rapidly rising in its stature and credentials with a clearly strengthened perception of both spirituality and scholarship as key components of contemporary Orthodox pastoral formation.
In 2023, many of you will obviously join in a celebration of what will be Holy Trinity Seminary’s 75th Anniversary, so that charting a path toward the success of this milestone is now a priority. In the meantime, during the remaining weeks of 2021, the Jordanville Annual Fund needs to raise an additional $250,000 to help balance the seminary’s budget through the current academic year. With your help, we must reach this goal by midnight December 31st – which will comprise a major step within our overall effort toward the seminary’s long-term stabilization.
Each year, the Annual Fund reaches out to everyone because it is indeed about everyone’s regular participation. We hope that the annual giving levels indicated on the enclosed Donor Card will help you decide exactly how you can help us!
We look forward to your speedy reply!
Sincerely, in Christ,
Deacon Michael Pavuk
Director of Development
