Malankara Church is selected as 2018 #GivingTuesday Partner

St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary has decided to partner with the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church in their annual #GivingTuesday campaign.

SVOTS will tithe 10% of the funds raised on November 27 to the Malankara Church's Kerala Flood Relief project. His Holiness Moran Mar Baselios Marthoma Paulos II, Catholicos of the East & Malankara Metropolitan, shared of his gratitude to the initiative of the seminary: “It is a matter of greater consolation to know that our sister Churches are concerned with the situations we face.”

Our Metropolitan, His Grace Zachariah Mar Nicholovos, a member of the Board of Trustees at St. Vladimir’s Seminary, conveyed to his appreciation to Very Reverend Father Dr. Chad Hatfield, President of the Seminary: “Your sincere act has shown theology of the Church, which is rooted in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ, in action.”

SVS is a theological institution of the Orthodox Church in America. Currently, there are four students from the Malankara Orthodox Church enrolled in the Master of Divinity program at St. Vladimir’s Seminary.
