The Road to Unity
From Vision to Action: Orthodox Christianity in America

October 29-31, 2009
Antiochian Village Ligonier, PA

American Orthodox Christianity is already unified in doctrine and fellowship but we are not unified as jurisdictions. Orthodox Christianity can flourish in America and our Orthodox faith can give much to our nation in return. Join us this fall to examine what we can do to foster unity in America

The Road to Unity is blessed by Met. Philip, Met. Jonah, and Met. Christopher. Keynote will be delivered by Met. Jonah. Other hierarchs attending include Abp. Nathaniel of Detroit and Bp. Thomas of Charleston, and the list is growing.

Orthodox Unity at Work and In Service; Unity Efforts Past and Present; The Orthodox Church of America Tomorrow; Orthodoxy and American Culture; Youth; Orthodox Communication; The Great and Holy Council.

John Couretas, Fr. Hans Jacobse, Nicholas Katich, John Maddex, Fr. Justin Mathews, Peter Marudas, George Michalopoulos, Mother Sarah Elizabeth Oftedel, Fr Antonio Perdomo. More panelists TBA.
