REGISTER NOW: Diaconal Liturgical Practicum @ St. Vladimir Orthodox Theological Seminary  | Yonkers | New York | United States

Register now for this four–day program of intense liturgical training to be held from Sunday, June 22–Wednesday, June 25, 2014 on the campus of St. Vladimir’s Seminary. Held in conjunction with the Orthodox Church in America’s Diaconal Vocations Program (DVP), this workshop is for deacons and lay diaconal candidates and will be supported by celebration of the Divine Liturgy and other services.

Intensive workshops in the Practicum aim to provide participants with the skills needed to serve effectively in the Orthodox Church as an attentive server, deacon, or priest. Attention will be given to the liturgical patterns of movement that inform the entire rite of the Church. Participants will also receive guidance on concelebrations and hierarchical celebrations so that they can effectively prepare for such occasions. In addition to practicums, focused presentations by faculty will augment the deacon’s understanding of his place in the liturgical life of the Church and the deacon’s broader vocation as a symbol to the faithful of the diakonia of Christ our Lord. Instruction in public speaking and vocal technique will also be offered.
