Join me at St. Vlad's Education Day

(SVS) - St. Vladimir's Education Day Online returns! Listen to discussions by Orthodox scholars and ask them your burning questions on a variety of topics, including Scripture, church history, and current events such as the influx of Orthodox seekers and the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court. Education Day Online is a six-hour “Zoomathon” where you get to participate and pose questions to Seminary professors and guest scholars. It seems they are not avoiding the hot-button topics, but showing a willingness to address them directly. Laudable.

The online event is Saturday, August 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EDT (7 a.m. to 1 p.m. PDT). Participate in discussions and win prizes. Join the Zoomathon when a topic that interests you is scheduled, or join several discussions throughout the day. It's up to you when you join and for how long. (See the schedule below.)

Education Day Online is also for a good cause—join us and help raise $30,000 to educate seminarians! Attendance is FREE. Please consider making a donation as you register or during the event. (If donating through our Giving Page, please write "St. Vladimir's Education Day Online" in the comment section, or select it from the drop down menu.)

You may submit questions now, as you register, to be asked during the event on August 13 (please indicate what topic your question belongs to in the comment box). Of course, you will be able to submit questions during the event as well.

Faculty members from St. Vladimir’s Seminary will be joined by His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon and University of Scranton Professor Rev. Dn. Dr. Michael Azar (SVOTS class of '05).

Register here.

  1. Fr. Chad knows that there are plenty of "progressive" and faithless elements within Orthodoxy, some of it well organized and funded (e.g. Fordham's "Orthodox Christian Studies Center"). He also knows that the world presses upon the Faithful, and that "modernism" and secularism in its diverse guises is something that happens *inside* the Church. Thus, he knows ducking all this is a fools game, one played by too many bishops/clerics/faithful.

    I wish we had more like him.
