Ongoing study of the Scriptures and Spiritual Reading in general
St John Chrysostom famously said that without continuous study of the scriptures, we can scarcely hope to be saved, and St Seraphim of Sarov taught that we should be "swimming in the law of the Lord."
How fortunate therefore for us that our pastor, Fr Steven, has established an annual regimen of insightful studies to build us up in our most holy faith. Broken up roughly into semesters, we have a multi-week Summer Bible Study, a six-week long Fall Adult Education Class, a special Winter Reading Circle in which we read and discuss some work of classic literature, and occasional parish-wide discussion events, in which we concentrate for an evening or two on key topics of interest.
While these ongoing efforts are essential, we must not overlook our Catechumen and Inquirers Classes, which have been virtually continuous of late. Designed especially for those new to Orthodoxy, parishioners are always welcome to join these introductory classes to refresh themselves with the basics of our faith.
On this page, we feature the current semester's program, as well as links to our archives of past classes and resources.
For further information, or if you have any questions, please contact Fr. Steven.
Fall Adult Education Class 2017 begins Mon. Oct 30
"This year we will be reading The Roots of Christian Mysticism by Olivier Clement. The very prominent Orthodox scholar Fr. Andrew Louth said of this book: 'There are some books so good that all one wants to say is: go out, buy it and read it - it is marvelous!' This book - and the ensuing discussion - will immerse you into Orthodox spirituality like few books possibly could. There is nothing quite like it!"
— Fr. Steven
We hope to see you there!
