Feast of the Three Hierarchs
Feast of the Three Hierarchs

On February 12 (New Calendar) the Church celebrates the memory of Saints Basil the Great, John Chrysostom and Gregory the Theologian.  This feast was established to end the controversy over who among these holy fathers was the greatest.  In other words, the Church wants to emphasize that they are all equal in honor and piety and importance for the Church.

Since these fathers established the tradition of scholarly and pious theology in the Church, they have been considered the patron saints of theologians, and by extension, of Orthodox seminaries.

For more information on the feast, please check the Holy Trinity Seminary website (www.hts.edu).

Bishop luke was warmly congratulated on the fifth anniversary of his elevation to the episcopal rank.
