Wednesday, November 7, St. Vladimir's Seminary Hosts Missions Presentation


Many Orthodox faithful are unaware that there are 338 Orthodox churches in Guatemala, with 200,000 faithful and catechumens, and that hundreds of Latin Americans continue to leave the Roman Catholic Church on a daily basis, seeking other religious experiences, including worship within the liturgical services of the Orthodox Church. With this as a backdrop, St. Vladimir's Seminary is hosting a presentation by two dynamic priests who are at the center of this phenomenon, on Wednesday, November 7, at 7:30 p.m.: "Mission to Guatemala: Receiving the Mayan People into the Orthodox Church." The Very Rev. Archimandrite Dr. Andres GirĂ³n de Leon and The Very Rev. John Chakos will be guest lecturers, sharing first hand their missionary activities among the indigenous people of Guatemala. The presentation will be in the Metropolitan Philip Auditorium of the John G. Rangos Family Building on campus.
