Welcome to Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology.
Holy Cross is a unique graduate School of Theology and Seminary of the Greek Orthodox Church in America, a province of the Ecumenical Patriarchate.
Our beautiful 59-acre campus in Brookline, Massachusetts overlooks Greater Boston. The campus is not far from the many religious, cultural, artistic, athletic and educational resources of this historic region of the country.
Through our community life and academic programs, we emphasize the intimate relationship between the study of Orthodox theology and worship and service to others. Our community is centered upon Jesus Christ and His Gospel as known, lived and taught by the Orthodox Church.
Students come to Holy Cross for a theological education which will enable them to serve the Church and society as faithful and knowledgeable clergy or lay leaders. Most students are enrolled in one of our three graduate degree programs: Master of Divinity (M.Div.), Master of Theological Study (M.T.S.) and the Master of Theology (Th.M.).
Our student body is composed of men and women from throughout the United States and a number of other countries. While most are members of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, many others come from Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox jurisdictions in this country and from abroad. We also welcome students from other traditions who wish to study Orthodox theology.
Our faculty is committed to the education and formation of our students as well as their spiritual growth. Many of our faculty members are widely recognized for their contributions to Orthodox theology and spirituality through their teaching, books and articles as well as their participation in theological conferences and ecumenical dialogues.
If you are interested in the ordained priesthood or other forms of ministry in the Church and the society, Holy Cross will offer you a valuable foundation in the disciplines of Orthodox theology. Holy Cross will also provide distinctive opportunities for you to discern your vocation and to cultivate your personal gifts as well as to acquire pastoral insights and leadership skills within our community of faith and worship and service.
Other pages of this site will provide you with further information about the student life, faculty and degree programs of our School.
