Cemetery of St. Tikhon's Monastery

Above and in the following posts are some photographs my husband and I took at the cemetery adjoining St. Tikhon’s Monastery and Seminary in the summer of 2002. St. Tikhon’s, named for St. Tikhon of Zadonsk, an 18th century Russian bishop, is located in South Canaan, Pennsylvania. The monastery was dedicated on 31 July 1905. The graves here include those of a number of clergy and laypeople who have played a prominent role in the history of the Orthodox Church in America.
