Lectures on Orthodoxy

Led by Fr. Christos Kalaitzis and Koula Fkiaras via Zoom

Mrs. Koula Fkiaras began community lectures on theology in 2015. These lectures have increased in frequency and popularity, moving to Zoom during the COVID-19 pandemic and reaching participants even beyond Portland.

Lectures continue every other Tuesday, at 11:00 a.m. They are conducted in Greek and cover topics such as feast days, holy sacraments, saints, architectural structure of the church, among other subjects.

Μαθήματα για την Ορθόδοξη πίστη

Το 2015, με την ευλογία του π. Παύλου Πάρις, προϊσταμένου της Αγίας Τριάδας, η κ. Κούλα Φκιαρά ξεκίνησε ομιλίες στην κοινότητα, πάνω σε θεολογικά θέματα. Αυτές οι ομιλίες ,έχοντας αυξηθεί ως προς τη συχνότητά τους, αλλά και ως προς τη συμμετοχή των ακροατών, πήραν τη μορφή των τηλεσυναντήσεων ,κατά τη διάρκεια της πανδημίας , με τη συμμετοχή και ανθρώπων εκτός Πόρτλαντ. 

Οι ομιλίες λαμβάνουν χώρα κάθε άλλη Τρίτη στις 11:00 π.μ. Διεξάγονται στα ελληνικά και καλύπτουν, μεταξύ άλλων, θέματα όπως εορτές, ιερά μυστήρια, αγιολογία και αρχιτεκτονική των ναών

Orthodox Catechism Class

Led by Fr. Christos Kalaitzis

Our class is for anyone who would like to learn more about Orthodoxy whether he is already Orthodox, a catechumen or just inquiring. In our meetings we hope to help explain how the Eastern Orthodox Church understands God, human, the Church and the universe and our place in relationship with all of them. The content of the catechism will be adapted to the needs and level of the participants, starting from the simplest courses to the theological and scientific ones. The content consists of the basic truths that stem from the: Scripture, Creed, Revelation of the Triune God, saving work of Christ, the fathers, the Divine Liturgy, Holy Mysteries, ecclesiastical hymns.

We will be meeting every first, third and fourth Tuesday of the month via Zoom.
