      Metropolitan Kallistos [Ware] to moderate 15th Orientale Lumen Conference

      Posted 02/28

      WASHINGTON, DC [OCA] -- His Eminence, Metropolitan Kallistos [Ware]
      of Diokleia will serve as moderator at the 15th annual Orientale
      Lumen Conference here June 20-23, 2011.

      The conference theme -- "Rome and the Communion of Churches: Bishop,
      Patriarch or Pope" -- will be discussed from the Catholic and
      Orthodox Christian perspectives by several noted speakers
      representing both traditions.

      Other Orthodox Christian speakers include His Beatitude, Metropolitan
      Jonah, Primate of the Orthodox Church in America, and Sister Dr.
      Vassa [Larin], lecturer at the University of Vienna, Austria, of the
      Russian Orthodox Church Outside Of Russia. Panel discussions and
      questions will follow each presentation. For the first time, the
      conference proceedings will be broadcast live through an on-line
      video webcast. Viewers will be able to submit via e-mail questions to
      the moderator.

      During the conference, the Rev. Ron Roberson, CSP, who coordinates
      Catholic-Orthodox dialogues in North America for the US Conference of
      Catholic Bishops, will offer a summary presentation of the latest
      document from the North American Dialogue, "Steps Toward a Reunited
      Church: A Sketch of an Orthodox-Catholic Vision for the Future."

      Sponsored by Eastern Christian Publications and the Society of Saint
      John Chrysostom, the annual Orientale Lumen conferences provide a
      forum for Orthodox Christians and Roman and Eastern Rite Catholics to
      gather, discuss and learn about their respective traditions.
      Additional information, registration forms, and a schedule of fees
