June 17-19, 2011 Women's Conference at St. Vladimir's Seminary
- Dear Friends of St. Vladimirs Seminary,
Please join us June 1719, 2011 for our summer
conference: Women Disciples of the Lord. Through
talks, panels, and a wide array of workshops,
participants will explore and articulate the
Christ-centered context out of which lay, and
especially womens, ministries are to be
expressed. Come and listen to women pursuing
Gospel-bearing vocations in the Church and
parish, home, and society; and take advantage of
this opportunity to help our parishes and
Churches foster womens and lay vocations.
The conference will also listen to the particular
experiences of alumnae of Orthodox theological schools.
On Friday, June 17, 7:30 p.m., Archpriest John
Behr, dean of St. Vladimir's Seminary, will
present a free and public lecture, Male and
Female Created He Them, in the Metropolitan
Philip Auditorium of the John G. Rangos Family
Foundation Building, with reception to follow.
