ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP
“Keeping our College Students Connected to the Church”
Lenten Discussion and Dinner at the Boston Cathedral for the College Students of Greater Boston , MA Region
Brookline, MA – March 15, 2012 - The OCF National Office has received the following information From the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral of New England regarding a Lenten Discussion and dinner to be held on Monday March 19, 2012 for the College Students of the Greater Boston Area
We are pleased to invite you to a discussion seminar of our "Campus Ministry" organized by the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral of New England. The event is scheduled to take place at the Annunciation Cathedral, on Monday evening, March 19nd, 2012. We are honored to have Dr. Timothy Patitsas, who will share his knowledge and insights on the epitome of our Orthodox faith. The topic of his presentation will be: "The Inner Meaning of Holy Week." Taken together, Holy Week, Pascha, and Bright Week are the central liturgical celebrations of the Orthodox Church. The events re-lived through those 15 days are the font of Orthodox dogma, ethics, spirituality, and philanthropy. Come find out how to go deeper into this central mystery and grow closer to Christ.
Prof. Timothy Patitsas teaches Ethics at the Holy Cross Seminary in Brookline. His dissertation at The Catholic University of America explored theological and ethical themes in Orthodox Holy Week. He travels regularly to Greece, Russia, and Jerusalem.
The Campus Ministry is an effort to promote interest in the areas of the Orthodox Faith, Hellenism, Education, and other interest topics for all Orthodox Students of the Boston area.
The plan for the evening is as follows:
-Great Compline at 6:00pm with Metropolitan Methodios of Boston presiding
-Lecture from Dr. Patitsas and discussion to follow at 7:00pm
-Lenten Dinner at 8:00pm in the Cathedral’s Lower Hall.
Location address: 514 Parker Street, Boston/Roxbury Crossing, MA 02120. The Cathedral is easily accessible for students without cars on the Green E Line that will let you off at the Museum Exit at Ruggles and Huntington Ave.
The evening will be enriched by the presence of several prominent educators, classicists, and Greek American constituents. It will provide an excellent opportunity to engage within our Cathedral Community. Your support is greatly appreciated and as such I kindly ask that you spread the message to your family and peers. Particularly, new members are encouraged to attend as we happily hope to embrace as many as possible.
We kindly ask that you RSVP Fr. Cleopas at (617) 731-6633 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 16th, so that dinner accommodation can be made. The event is free and open to the public. Please, mark your calendars! I look forward seeing you there
