Banner for the Holy Trinity Seminary Giving Campaign Continues

Forged in Fire: An Appeal for Giving Tuesday

Latest Update on the 
Holy Trinity Seminary Giving Tuesday Campaign:

Dear Friends of Holy Trin­i­ty Seminary,

The giv­ing cam­paign continues!

On behalf of the admin­is­tra­tion, fac­ul­ty, and stu­dents of Holy Trin­i­ty Sem­i­nary, I wish to express our sin­cere grat­i­tude for the dona­tions toward our 2017 Giv­ing Tues­day cam­paign. With your gen­er­ous con­tri­bu­tions and God’s grace, we have raised more than $48,000 to date, and there­by secured a guar­an­teed match­ing grant of more than $48,000 for stu­dent schol­ar­ships for the 2018–2019 aca­d­e­m­ic year from a very gen­er­ous benefactor.

More details about the giving campaign and to donate.


Update: Our gen­er­ous anony­mous donor has con­firmed a pledge to fund up to thir­teen match­ing-grant schol­ar­ships! That means every $7,000 raised up to $91,000 will be matched by one addi­tion­al Pro­to­pres­byter Valery Lukianov Scholarship.

Dear Friends of Holy Trin­i­ty Seminary,

Since 1948, Holy Trin­i­ty Ortho­dox Sem­i­nary has pro­vid­ed a tra­di­tion­al Ortho­dox edu­ca­tion enlivened by the full­ness of its litur­gi­cal sched­ule and inspired by its monas­tic set­ting. This unique envi­ron­ment attracts stu­dents from all over the world who desire to be formed in the image of Christ and to ded­i­cate their lives to serv­ing the Church. This year, sem­i­nar­i­ans from Cana­da, Spain, Swe­den, Aus­tralia, and Sier­ra Leon have enrolled to become future Ortho­dox priests who will spread Ortho­doxy through­out the globe.

Since these sem­i­nar­i­ans are mak­ing such a seri­ous com­mit­ment to the Church, Holy Trin­i­ty Sem­i­nary attempts to pro­vide low-cost, high-qual­i­ty edu­ca­tion to ensure that future cler­gy can grad­u­ate debt-free. That is why gen­er­ous dona­tions from peo­ple like you are so impor­tant for us. In fact, your dona­tions cov­er over 90% of sem­i­nary oper­at­ing costs!

With your sup­port, Holy Trin­i­ty has not only pre­served the spir­it of Russ­ian Ortho­doxy but has been opti­miz­ing its abil­i­ty to trans­mit this tra­di­tion effec­tive­ly to a world that so des­per­ate­ly needs it. This year we hired a new dean, the Very Rev. Arch­priest Alexan­der F. C. Web­ster, PhD., whose aca­d­e­m­ic expe­ri­ence, mil­i­tary ser­vice, and admin­is­tra­tive skill com­bine to pro­duce the ide­al per­son to dri­ve HTS for­ward. Under his direc­tion, we are final­iz­ing the process to estab­lish our Mas­ter of Divin­i­ty degree pro­gram, sched­uled, God will­ing, to be oper­a­tional in Fall 2018.

There­fore, on this Giving​ ​Tuesday​ ​(11/28/2017​), we ask for your gen­er­ous assis­tance as we con­tin­ue to pro­vide rig­or­ous train­ing for the future lead­ers of the Church and to improve the qual­i­ty of that edu­ca­tion. If you have ques­tions, please give us a call at 315–858-0945 or email us at May the bless­ings of the Lord be upon you!

In Christ,


Archi­man­drite Luke
