The Labors of Bishop Nektary (Kontzevich) of Seattle in the Field of Spiritual Nurturing of Children and Youth
Professor Alexander KORNILOV
February 6, 2008, was the 25th anniversary of the blessed repose of the vicar bishop of the Western American Diocese, Bishop Nektary (Kontzevitch) of Seattle. The life path of Vladyka Nektary deserves a separate study; this article is dedicated merely to one of the aspects of his service to the Church – his labors with children and youth.
Bishop Nektary (1905-1983), while still just a priest, was many times singled out by the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia as well as by the ruling bishops of the Western American Diocese for his untiring work with Orthodox youth.
