Christ is Risen!
Join us live this Sunday, May 21, 2023, at 12:30 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) for the historic launch of the “A Light in the Darkness: Seminary Expansion Campaign”!
Glory be to God, Phase 1 is complete, with the site graded and the foundation having been poured.
Join us as the Rector of the Seminary, Bishop Auxentios of Etna and Portland, shares the vision of the expansion and details of the project plan. With the facility more than doubling in size, the expansion will increase the Seminary's capacity from 15 to 50 students.
A question and answer session will immediately follow the presentation.
We hope to see you all there!
