Orthodox Christian Synergy’s Annual Symposium 2009
Orthodox Christian Synergy is a pan-Orthodox organization consisting of clergy and lay representatives of Chicago-area Orthodox Christian parishes who seek to project awareness of Orthodox Christianity to the public at large. Synergy works together with its parent organization, the Orthodox Christian Clergy Association of Greater Chicago, and with the blessings of the Chicago-area Orthodox Hierarchs.
The topic of Synergy’s 2009 Symposium was “The Future of Orthodoxy in America,” and featured were two speakers: Fr. Stanley Harakas, Emeritus Professor of Orthodox Theology at Holy
Cross Seminary, who spoke on “The Future of Orthodoxy in America: Challenges and Required Attitudes and Actions” and Fr. Deacon Nicholas Belcher, Dean of Students at
Holy Cross Seminary, who spoke on “Raising Orthodox Christians for the Next Generation.” It took place at St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church in Cicero, Illinois on Saturday, October 17, 2009.
