San Francisco Program
Our 16-17 February 2013 rendition of the Prayer in the Church Fathers symposium for Northern California will take place in beautiful San Francisco – one of the great centers for Orthodox life and culture in Western North America. Continuing the Institute’s fledgling tradition of providing the best in Orthodox symposia to the SF Bay area and region, this two-day conference will feature our main speaker, Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware) of Diokleia, who will be joined by regional speakers in the beautiful and prayerful surroundings of the Old Cathedral of the Holy Virgin Mary on Fulton Street, to provide a thoughtful, in-depth, engaging exploration of the heritage of prayer in the Fathers of Orthodoxy, and how that heritage is lived-out by the faithful today.
