Anniversary of the Repose of Metropolitan Hilarion
Anniversary of the Repose of Metropolitan Hilarion

On May 17, the monastery observed the 2nd anniversary of the repose of the ever-memorable Metropolitan Hilarion, whose body is buried in the brotherhood cemetery of the monastery.  For the brethren it is a great consolation to have with us one who was a graduate of our Seminary and then one of our hieromonks and spiritual father to many of us.

            It was God’s will that Vladyka Hilarion, who was himself a cell attendant of the ever-memorable Archbishop Averky, would become a bishop of our church and eventually its First Hierarch, succeeding another member of our brotherhood, Metropolitan Laurus.

            On this day, our present First Hierarch, another graduate of our Seminary, Metropolitan Nicholas, provided for a commemorative meal at the monastery trapeza.  This was followed by a pannikhida at the grave of Vladyka Hilarion, served by our present abbot, Bishop Luke, also a graduate of our Seminary.  May the memory of Vladyka Hilarion be eternal, and may he rest among the saints.
