Classes on the Fathers of the Church 


“Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian, Gregory of Nyssa”. The names of these saints are familiar to most Orthodox Christians. They are counted among the most important of the Church Fathers. They are known as the Cappadocians. Basil and Gregory of Nyssa were brothers. Gregory the Theologian was a lifelong friend. Basil is among very few saints who was known as the “great”. If you would like to know more about these saints, join us on Sunday mornings at 10:00AM. Our schedule for January is:

January 8th: The life and times of Basil the Great
January 15th: No class: The Annual Parish meeting
January 22: The writings of St. Basil
January 29th: St. Gregory The Theologian
February 5th: St. Gregory of Nyssa
February 12th: St. John Chrysostom

All are welcome,

Fr. Daniel
