Adult Education
Fall 2021 Curriculum


Beginning Wednesday, October 6 and continuing through December 8 (skipping the eve of Thanksgiving) we are holding two adult study electives offered in parallel.  Each evening will begin at 6:30PM with evening prayers followed by a dinner.  Then from 7:15 - 8:30 two classes will be held at the Cathedral.

Hot Topics:  Contemporary Moral Issues

This session will be led by Fr. Nabil and will cover timely issues such as medical ethics, abortion, suicide, euthanasia, same sex attraction, marriage and any additional issue you would like to ask about.  This session will be in-person only.

Orthodox faith and practice (a.k.a. orthodoxy 101)

This session will be led by Subdeacon Seraphim with additional facilitation by Fr Andrew.  This curriculum covers the basics or Orthodoxy including the Bible, the Creed, tradition, salvation, sacraments, worship, prayer and spirituality.  This course is intended for both enquirers and for long-term Church members who would like a refresher into the basic teachings of our faith.  This class will be presented live at the Cathedral and will also be accessible via Zoom (the meeting credentials will be provided in our online bulletin).
