The Official Website of the Synod of Bishops of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia – 11/2/19

The Pastoral School of the Diocese of Chicago and Mid-America feels strongly that active partnership with higher education theological institutions of the Russian Orthodox Church/Moscow Patriarchate is an important aspect of making the continuing reconciliation of the Russian Church a real, living effort that will bear spiritual fruit, and that this is fully within the spirit of the Act of Canonical Communion signed by the ever-memorable Patriarch Aleksy II and Metropolitan Laurus on the day of the Ascension 2007.

In furtherance of this goal, The Pastoral School is happy to announce the signing of a Partnership Agreement with the Russian Orthodox University of St John the Theologian in Moscow on January 22/February 4, 2019. Signing on behalf of the Pastoral School was the Rector, Archbishop Peter of Chicago and Mid-America. Signing on behalf of the Russian Orthodox University of St John the Theologian was the Dean, Bishop Anthony of Morovici.

The Pastoral School looks forward to close cooperation with the Russian Orthodox University of St John the Theologian in the hopes that this will be a fruitful relationship for the faculty, staff, and students of both institutions of higher education.

It is our hope to announce additional Partnership Agreements in the near future.

Very Rev. Fr. Gregory Joyce, D.Min.
