St. Photios the Great Faith & Learning Symposium

On Saturday February 28th, 2009, Hellenic College will welcome Orthodox college students for the St. Photios the Great Faith & Learning Symposium which provides Orthodox Christian college students the space to reflect on the relationship between their faith and their lives as college students.

The Symposium asks the question: What is the vocation of an Orthodox Christian college student? In other words, how do they, during this time in their lives, answer Christ's call?

This year, Fr. Brendan Pelphrey will be our keynote speaker on the topic of Apologia: Explaining the Faith. Please join other Boston-area Orthodox Christian students for what promises to be a lively and engaging discussion. For more information, visit our Facebook page, download the 2009 Flier, or view the schedule.
