2015 Festivals to Commemorate Anniversary of St. Raphael's Repose
The 2015 Oratorical Conference theme for the Antiochian Archdiocese has been announced as the “100th Anniversary of the Falling Asleep of Saint Raphael.” Bishop Raphael (Hawaweeny), much beloved by the American Syrian community he served during the early years of Orthodoxy on the North American continent, reposed in 1915 and was canonized in 2000 as St. Raphael of Brooklyn. This year’s Creative Arts, Bible Bowl, and Oratorical Festivals held across the U.S. and Canada will feature his life and legacy.

5th Annual Climacus Conference: KY @ St. Michael the Archangel Antiochian Orthodox Church  | Louisville | Kentucky | United States
Theme: “Truth, Goodness, Beauty will save us” Speakers: Fr. Alexis Kouri & Others The Climacus Conference 2015 will seek to def­end bea­uty. Thus, we will first att­empt to def­ine bea­uty, parti­cularly on philo­sophical grounds. After all, we dis­cern bea­uty in phys­ical obj­ects and abstr­act ideas, in nat­ure and art, in ani­mals and things, and in people, quali­ties, and act­ions. What is this prop­erty of bea­uty pres­ent in all of these things? What is the status of bea­uty as an ult­imate value? Next we will con­sider the aesth­etics of some par­ticular beau­tiful things—such as church buil­dings, poems, icons, paint­ings, and music. Thirdly, we will con­sider some of the intel­lectual disci­plines—phi­lo­sophy, theo­logy, litera­ture, et al.—and their inter­action with aesth­etics. Finally, we will con­sider the pra­ctice of aesth­etics—the redem­ptive and salvific role of bea­uty in our lives. For more information: http://www.climacusconference.org/
