V. Rev. Dr. Alexander Atty steps down as Dean, COO of St. Tikhon�s Seminary
It is with heavy hearts that the Saint Tikhon�s community learned of the
Very Reverend Dr. Alexander Atty�s decision to step down as Dean and
Chief Operating Officer of the Seminary due to issues of illness.
In a statement released to the community on Tuesday evening, Father
Alexander said: �I feel at this time that my physical struggles make it
impossible for me to devote the time and energy necessary to the
Seminary and, most importantly, to the student body.�
Father Alexander went on to describe the great blessings he had received
in serving the students of the Seminary and asked for the community�s
prayers for both him and his family.
The Saint Tikhon�s community wishes Father Alexander all of God�s
choicest blessings as he undergoes medical treatment, and asks for the
prayer�s of the entire Church.
Words by the President of the Seminary, His Beatitude, Metropolitan
Tikhon and the Rector of the Seminary, His Grace, Bishop Michael, are
