On Monday, September 21, 2020, His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros, Exarch of the Ecumenical Patriarchate will offer a virtual lecture, titled "The Future of Orthodox-Catholic Relations in the U.S.A." This lecture, from 6–8 p.m. will be the inaugural Economos Orthodoxy in America Lecture, which is newly renamed in recognition of Christ and Anastasia Economos's faithful support of the Orthodox Christian Studies Center.
The Economos Orthodoxy in America Lecture will explore the Orthodox tradition and its intersection with the American religious experience. The Economos family’s landmark endowment of the lecture series will ensure opportunities for advanced ecumenical conversations for years to come. The 2020 lecture is also made possible with a generous grant from The Nicholas J. & Anna K. Bouras Foundation, Inc.
The Orthodox Christian Studies Center, co-founded by Archons George Demacopoulos and Aristotle Papanikolaou, sponsors a wide range of academic and public lectures, seminars, and conferences.
A link to join the online lecture will be sent the evening prior to the event, but you must register for the event. This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
