Интервью с выпускником СТДС (выпуск 2007 г.)
Выпускники Свято-Троицкой семинарии несут свое служение в разных условиях и качествах. Мы главным образом знаем о тех, кто служит в епископском и пресвитерском сане. Меньше о диаконах и совсем ничего знаем о тех кто не принял священный сан. К этой категории относятся те, кто трудится на приходах, в тюрьмах и просто на светских работах. Записанная по Скайпу беседа с Константином Сегргеевичем Ноговицыным (выпускником 2007 г.) должна послужить началу восполнения этого пробела.
Interview with 2007 HTS Graduate
Holy Trinity Seminary graduates carry out their ministry in a variety of places and capacities. The ones we know about the most tend to be our graduates in the episcopal and priestly ranks; we know less about the deacons and hardly anything at all about those who have remained as laymen. These include both parish and prison workers and men in ordinary civil employment. This Skype interview with Constantine Sergeevich Nogovitsyn, our 2007 graduate should begin to redress this imbalance.
