Archimandrite Irenei address students on the Feast Day of the Institute
(31st January 2015) Today marks the fourth occasion that we have kept this day as the Feast Day of our Institute, which began its operations in late 2011 but was formally dedicated on 31st January 2012, just in advance of our first Symposium. Over the intervening three years, we have felt richly graced by the way the Lord has blessed us in His Saints, providing us with wonderful students, opportunities for growth, new programs and activities, and work which — by God's mercy — leads us towards a deeper life of prayer and communion in His Church.
Hilary Term begins with new students and new modules
(16th January 2015) The Institute's Hilary Term has begun this week, welcoming both new students and a new module into the offerings on our Certificate Program. A handful of new students began mid-year this term, joining an active cohort in our module on The Ancient Scriptures in the Church; and a large, vibrant group of students has set into the Orthodox Liturgical Life and Worship module that we're offering for the first time.
Moving towards Nativity with classes on Christians and the Law, and the Trinity

Fourteen students from all over the country took part in the live class as part of our Certificate Program in Orthodox Studies by Distance Learning.
