Each Lent, the Orthodox Churches of Greater Flint, Michigan, join each other for Great Vespers, a light lenten meal, and a lecture. Parishes include Assumption (Greek), St. George (Antiochian), St. Mary Magdalene (OCA), and St. Nicholas (OCA). This past Lent's speaker was Fr. Silviu N. Bunta, PhD, and his topic was "The Bible: An Orthodox Perspective."
From October 9-10, 2015, the St. Irenaeus Orthodox Theological Institute, in partnership with Saint Louis University, presented a conference to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the mutual lifting of excommunications by Pope Paul VI and Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras I. Speakers included Metropolitan Tarasios, the Primate of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Buenos Aires and South America, and Fr. Brian E. Daley, the Catherine F. Huisking Professor of Theology at the Univeristy of Notre Dame.
