The 2015 Orthodox Institute will be held November 5-8 at Antiochian Village. This year’s institute will explore the theme Adult Education: Building on the Foundation of Faith, and will include the following presenters:

  • Gerry Clonaris
  • Fr. Andrew Stephen Damick

As always, the Orthodox Institute will offer, in cooperation with the Orthodox Christian Education Commission, the Church School Director Seminar, and Advanced Teacher Training taught by the volunteer staff of the Antiochian Orthodox Department of Christian Education. Book-signings, and wine-and-cheese receptions add to the wonderful weekend. Fellowship, worship, learning and sharing all come together in a beautiful setting. This year, for some of our sessions, we will have the company of those attending the first Pilgrimage of St. Raphael who will be arriving Friday night.
