Christ the Saviour Seminary to host inquirers event

(ACROD) - Are you looking for something different to do with your Spring Break? Come and experience the life of Christ the Saviour Seminary in Johnstown, Pennsylvania!

As you stay at the Seminary, you will fully participate in the daily life of the students, both spiritual and academic. You will attend daily services, sit-in on classes, have fellowship with the seminarians and faculty, and have personal “down time” for prayer, reflection, reading, etc. Worship will also take place at our celebrated Christ the Saviour Cathedral. Since Western Pennsylvania has several well-known Orthodox sites such as Holy Transfiguration Monastery in Ellwood City and Antiochian Village in nearby Ligonier, other visits and excursions may be planned as well.

The Seminary is open for any Spring Break schedule (February 12 - March 31), and men aged 18 and over are invited. There is no cost; meals and activities are fully provided. Guests are limited to stay for one week, and are responsible for transportation to the Seminary. Contact Seminarian Bill George at or (814) 539-0116. Accommodations are limited so make reservations early.


  1. Wonderful! But why only men? Don't you have any female students? The seminaries in Russia have special courses (3 years I think) just for women who are educated to be choir directors and cantors. They study theology and of course church music.
    By the why hw many students does your seminary have?

  2. Most other seminaries offer a non-clergy track (Master of Theology or similar) for women. I believe Christ the Saviour only offers a degree plan for men seeking ordination.
