Here is a brief biographical sketch of Archimandrite Sergius (Bowyer), the Abbot of St. Tikhon's Monastery.

Archimandrite Sergius, originally from California is a convert to Holy Orthodoxy and a graduate of St. Tikhon's Orthodox Theological Seminary. Fr. Serguis sought solace in the monastic life of the Orthodox Church by being tonsured as a monk of St. Tikhon's Orthodox Monastery in South Canaan, Pennsylvania - the first Orthodox Christian Monastery in North America.

Aside from his duties as a monk, Fr. Sergiss dedicated much of his service to the training of the future priests of the Holy Orthodox Church in North America by serving as the lecturer in liturgical music, one of his many fortes. After many years of prayerful service as a humble monk, Fr. Sergius was ordained to the Holy Diaconate and to the Holy Priesthood in December 2008, by His Beatitude Metropolitan Jonah, Primate of the Orthodox Church in America.

Archimandrite Sergius was installed as the 16th Abbot of Saint Tikhon’s Monastery  on Saturday, January 23, 2010.  Elected on October 24, 2009, this marks the first election of a member of the monastery brotherhood to the position of Abbot in 47 years.

On Sunday morning, May 25, during the annual Pilgrimage weekend,  His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon  elevated F. Sergius to the dignity of Archimandrite.
