40th Anniversary Education Series: The World Alive - The Legacy of Fr Alexander Schmemann

September 16, 2018

During the 40th anniversary year of the Sign of the Theotokos, our adult education thematic series is devoted to Fr Alexander Schmemann’s vision of and apostolic endeavours for the Church in North America and throughout the world.

The founding of the Sign of the Theotokos was one of the many realizations of Fr Alexander’s vision of the Church engaged in the process of transforming the world into the Kingdom of God.

There will be six sessions: three talks by guest speakers, a new film about the life and work of Fr Alexander, and two moderated discussion sessions on Metropolitan Tikhon’s newly published guidelines for the Church, Of What Life Do We Speak?

The Sunday one-hour sessions listed below will take place at 12:30, after Coffee Hour, following the Divine Liturgy at 10:00 AM. All are welcome!
