PUBLIC LENTEN RETREAT: “Melody of Faith,” Dr. Vigen Guroian
St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary, Saturday, March 31, 2012

Dr. Vigen Guroian, professor of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia, will lead our annual public lenten retreat this year on Saturday, March 31, 2012. The retreat will begin with a Divine Liturgy celebrated in our campus Chapel of the Three Hierarchs at 9 a.m., followed by a lenten brunch and then two presentations by Dr. Guroian.

Dr. Guroian has authored of a number of books, many on morality and ethics, and many that are meditative in content, such as Inheriting Paradise: Meditations on Gardening. Dr. Guroian will base the content of this year's public lenten retreat on his latest book, Melody of Faith: Theology in an Orthodox Key (Eerdmans, 2010).

REGISTER NOW! Price of registration is $10 (with brunch) or free (without brunch), but all participants must register here.
