- Church History and Patristics
- Dogmatic Theology

“Spirituality, as we teach it here, is the study of the Orthodox understanding of: who the human being is; what is the life of prayer; how the scriptures are interpreted for both liturgical and prayerful use; and how ascetic teachings apply to human life,” said Archpriest Elijah Mueller, the head of the St. Macrina Institute.
This cycle would run until 2023 and the estimated cost is $500 per student. The instructors are experienced and knowledgeable teachers, approved Diocesan faculty. For more information, please contact Fr. Elijah by email, firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone 312.714.9775.
