On Saturday May 18, His Grace joined Metropolitan Tikhon and the faculty and staff of Saint Vladimir’s Seminary for the Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2024. Among the graduates is the Archdiocese’s own Deacon Juxhin Shkurti. In addition to His Grace, Deacon Juxhin and Livia's families traveled from Albania, and clergy and faithful from around the Archdiocese, to celebrate the day with our newest clergy family. With his studies complete, Deacon Juxhin and Livia will be moving to Boston for a year-long pastoral internship at the Cathedral before their official parish assignment. May God grant Deacon Juxhin and Livia many years!

If you, your children/grandchildren, or friends are interested in the possibility of a pastoral or liturgical arts leadership role in the Archdiocese, you/they should reach out to the Archdiocese’s Student Fund Committee to discuss the steps necessary to start the process. If you would like to contribute to the Fund to help students defry the costs of education, please visit the Student Fund website.
