Orthodoxy 101 Class is offered by Father Stavros, twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. This will be the SAME CLASS so no need to take it again if you already have. This will be a three-week course of study on Monday nights to make people aware of the basics of being an Orthodox Christian. Please email Fr. Stavros by January 15 – a minimum of 7 need to sign up for this class to happen.
Classes will be held on Mondays: January 23, January 30 and February 6.
Who should attend the Orthodoxy 101 class?
- Interfaith couples. This will help the non-Orthodox person understand more what is going on in our church when they attend.
- Anyone who is considering joining our church. Going forward, this class will be a requirement for those who wish to join our Orthodox faith.
- New converts to Orthodoxy. For those who recently joined our church and who want to know a little bit more about it.
- Anyone who wants to know more about the basics of our faith, or who wants a refresher course in the basics of Orthodoxy is encouraged to attend.
The classes will be part lecture, part discussion, with lots of time for questions and answers. The three sessions will be done as follows:
Class 1: A Tour of the Orthodox Church: What we see in the Church and what it means
Class 2: Orthodox Spirituality: The Seven Sacraments and the Divine Liturgy
Class 3: Orthodox Traditions: Fasting, Icons, Prayer, sand Separating Theology from “yiayialogy”
Classes will be held on three Mondays from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and will be held in the CHURCH Sanctuary. Please sign up with Fr. Stavros, so he has enough materials for everyone. There is no charge for this class.
