An Introduction of the Mission of Orthodox Christian Laity (OCL) and an Overview of the Meeting of Orthodox Scholars and Professionals sponsored by the International Orthodox Christian Association (IOTA), which was held in Romania – January 2019.
Program Presenter: Dr. Gayle Woloschak, professor of Radiation Oncology at Northwestern University in Chicago; adjunct professor of Religion and Science — Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and St. Vladimir’s Seminary, will discuss this new spirit of energy and commitment to unity. Dr. Woloschak serves on the boards of Orthodox Christian Laity and the International Orthodox Theological Association (IOTA) and was a member of the planning committee of the meeting in Romania.
The future of Orthodoxy in the United States and worldwide depends on the cooperation of all Orthodox jurisdictions. OCL invites you to join us to learn more about the movement toward unity and the mission of Orthodox Christian Laity. Reasoning together, we can develop ideas on how we can work together locally in SW Florida to make unity of Orthodox Christians a reality here in our own community.
