Today the participants had their first day of theology and scripture classes with Fr. Maximos Constas (Senior Research Scholar at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology) and Dr. George Demacopoulos (Professor of Theology Fr. John Meyendorff & Patterson Family Chair of Orthodox Christian Studies). Small staff-led break out discussion groups followed their theology and scripture lectures.
Following the lectures, we took our first adventure into downtown Boston where we had lunch at the Boston Common, the oldest park in the country, followed by a tour of the city. The evening concluded with a talk and vespers service at St. George Albanian Orthodox Cathedral in South Boston.
It was a full day of fun, learning, and growing closer as a group!
