Saint Macrina Orthodox Institute Offers Spirituality Class December/January

CHICAGO, IL [DOM] –  Saint Macrina Orthodox Institute is offering a new cycle of 7 courses focusing on the basics of Orthodox spirituality through important patristic texts. The texts will explain traditional scriptural interpretation and teach the ascetic theology of the Church.

“Through these, students will learn to apply scriptural and liturgical images to our inner life, and identify the virtues and passions as described by the great teachers of the Church,” stated course instructor, Archpriest Elijah Mueller, Ph.D. “This course is a formational foundation of the program, helping us to inculcate the right virtues and the practice of prayer that supports the whole curriculum. Learning about ‘ascesis’ helps to prepare the students to have the right frame of mind for further study of theological subjects that follow in the curriculum.”

The course will be on Sundays (approximately every second Sunday, 4-7pm CT); however, the dates are to be decided by conferral with students. The cost of the course is $500, with the class taking place on Zoom, and some in-person hybrid sessions for Chicago Deanery students.

Those interested in learning more are asked to contact Fr. Elijah at the email or phone number listed in the flyer.
