Registration open for summer 2013 Parish Ministries Conference
ARLINGTON, VA — Registration is now open for “Faith in Action: Equipping the Saints for Worship, Learning and Service,” a parish ministries conference slated to be held on the campus of Marymount University, Arlington, VA July 10-13, 2013.
The conference builds upon a similar OCA-sponsored gathering held within the Diocese of the Midwest on the campus of Baldwin-Wallace College, Berea, OH in 2010. Nearly 200 clergy and faithful participated in the conference.
Sponsored by four departments of the Orthodox Church in America — Liturgical Music and Translations, Christian Education, Christian Service and Humanitarian Aid, and Youth, Young Adult and Campus Ministry — the conference will present practical and tested resources for parish-based ministries through a variety of thematic tracks, workshops and general presentations.
Protopresbyter Thomas Hopko, Dean Emeritus of Saint Vladimir’s Seminary, will offer the keynote address. His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon, and His Grace, Bishop Mark of Baltimore, will be among those in attendance.
