Created in 2018, this new ministry hones in on the study of Scriptures. During the 2021/22 Ecclesiastical year,  the ministry will be studying the Book of Revelation.  Sessions meet in-person on Thursday mornings at 10:30 a.m. at the church (see schedule below) and will also be offered simultaneously via Zoom.  No  preparation for the class is required and everyone is welcome!  The Orthodox Study Bible, or Orthodox Study Bible app, is a good companion resource for this ministry. 

The group discussion will be led by Helen Theodoropoulos, PhD, MA (Doctor of Theology from University of Chicago and Masters from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology). Helen is an Adjunct Professor at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox School of Theology.

For more information about this ministry and to be added to the email list in order to receive updates prior to each session, please contact Marcia Moore at
