      The counsellors for education and the directors of the theological
      seminaries met the Patriarch of Romania

      On 26th April 2013, His Beatitude Daniel, Patriarch of the Romanian
      Orthodox Church met in Europa Christiana hall of the Patriarchate Palace
      the directors of theological and high schools seminaries, and the
      counsellors for education and youth activity, as well as the specialised
      inspectors of the Romanian Patriarchate.

      During the meeting His Beatitude spoke to those present about the
      importance of the religious education in the life of the Church and society.

      “We wish to thank all those who contributed and continue to contribute
      with much diligence, devotion and sacrifice to the intensification of
      the missionary work of the Church through theological education and
      religious education. Certainly, there are many things to be done, but
      first of all let us see the light through those with missionary
      conscience within the theological education. It should be pointed out
      that the Romanian Orthodox Church is one of the Orthodox Churches of the
      world with the greatest number of theological schools, faculties and
      seminaries. This fact shows the continuation of the fact that we
      strengthen the activity and presence of the Church in society through
      the theological education. The service at the altar is completed with
      the service at the chair and here we engage lots of young people who
      answer the call of Christ”, His Beatitude said, according to Trinitas
      Radio station.

      The expert counsellor of the Romanian Patriarchate spoke about the
      importance of the meeting, also drawing the conclusions of the discussions.

      “One of the basic conclusions of this meeting was the fact that we must
      analyse lucidly and sincerely our theological education and find the
      solutions needed to try to strengthen both its academic and spiritual
      aspect. We have also identified a series of issues in dialogue and I
      admit it was a fruitful one. All the seminaries directors took the floor
      and presented during the meeting the solutions they thought fit for
      solving them. We think the follow up of our meeting is necessary in
      order to reach the renewal and restructure of the theological
      education”, declared Rev. Constantin Patuleanu, Counsellor of the
      Theological Educational Department of the Romanian Patriarchate, as
      Trinitas Radio informs.

      These days, the counsellors for education and activity with the youth,
      the inspectors in the field, as well as the directors of theological
      seminaries and high schools of the Romanian Patriarchate participate in
      the regional workshop entitled “Inclusive Education for All”, organised
      within FORTE project – lasting formation for social partnership. The
      works are held at “Dumitru Staniloae” Formation Centre.

      To end with, all those present received several publications on behalf
      of the Patriarch of Romania.
