Orthodox Christians in Service of ‘Perfect Love’

(St. Catherine's Vision) - Divine Compassion: Orthodox Christians in Service of ‘Perfect Love’ to be held on November 14-16, 2013 on Hellenic College Holy Cross campus.

Therefore receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God.

--Romans 15:7

Our Lord revealed the Father to be a compassionate God. Christ expressed this divine compassion through his dealings with the sick, the poor, the women, the outcasts, and all those who were abused, forgotten and in need. He assured them of the Father’s love and compassion. For they were his valued daughters and sons. At the same time, the Lord calls his followers to be compassionate.

Divine Compassion: Orthodox Christians in Service of 'Perfect Love' will provide the opportunity for Orthodox Christians to understand more deeply the reality of Divine Compassion, the eleos of God, and how we are called to bear witness to it within the Church and society.

This conference will bring together persons who relate a theocentric and philanthropic theology with the real needs of persons. These include clergy, theologians, philanthropists, educators, pastoral care-givers, counselors, first-responders, chaplains, philoptochos members, health care providers, and students.

The conference is co-sponsored by Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston and Saint Catherine's Vision, a Pan-Orthodox association of women theologians and other lay-leaders.

Blessed by the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America, Saint Catherine's Vision Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
