The Office of Vocation & Ministry invites Orthodox college and graduate students from the Boston area to participate in the Tenth Annual St. Photios the Great Faith & Learning Symposium on Saturday, February 7, 2015.
HCHC President Fr. Nicholas Triantifilou is known to encourage Orthodox Christians to begin the day with a Bible in one hand and a newspaper in the other. This symposium honors his 15 years of service to the school and retirement this year by addressing current conflicts and crises around the world from an Orthodox scholarly perspective.
The symposium will feature an open forum roundtable discussion with three accomplished scholars. Each have extensive academic and field experience relating to religious freedom, extremism, and suffering.
