Orthodox Education

Throughout each year, we present a series of educational talks / discussions both live and via video conference.  Some of the programs are designed to be in person and interactive, while others are in the form of a teaching with questions and answers (and are recorded).  This page archives the completed series of talks that are of the latter type.  Some of the links will take you to presentation slides or topic outlines.  Others will take you to video recordings of the live sessions.  For those programs that are in process, new links will be present a few days after the completion of the session. 

Fall 2022 Sessions

This fall we are running two concurrent sessions.  As usual, we will start at 6:30 with an abbreviated vespers, followed by a dinner.  After the meal (sometime between 7:15 - 7:30 we will begin our discussions.  Fr Nabil will be leading a class on Early Christian Faith and Worship (see below for the transcripts video & power point) of those sessions which will be posted after they occur.  Fr. Nabil's session will be live and via Zoom (a zoom link will be sent to the Cathedral mailing list in advance of each session).  Fr Andrew will be leading a book study on the text "Bread & Water, Wine & Oil" by Fr. Meletios Webber.  Fr. Andrew's book study will be a live session and not be recorded.
