Three Hierarchs Chapel
Orthodox theological education is uniquely and significantly tied to liturgical worship. Seminarians and their
families are enriched, challenged, and instructed in Three Hierarchs Chapel, named for Ss. Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian, and John Chrysostom, and consecrated in 1983. Our academics are inseparable from our daily worship, which provides the context for everything we are doing at the Seminary. This worship is the cornerstone of our spiritual formation.
St. Vladimir's seminarians participate in twice-daily services during weekdays in non-fasting seasons—Matins and Vespers—and thrice-daily services during weekdays in fasting seasons—Matins, Vespers, and Compline. Our worship also includes Saturday evening Vigil and Sunday morning Divine Liturgy, as well as special festal and Lenten celebrations. Students are assigned to take an active part in daily reading, serving, and preaching, and to participate in the seminary choirs.
