The School of Christian Spiritual Formation

The Christian Spiritual Formation Conference Series

Exploring the Richness of the Christian Faith”

The School of Christian Spiritual Formation invites faithful and seekers to explore the richness of the Christian faith and become reacquainted with the core tenets of the Faith; in particular, with Jesus Christ, as Lord and teacher, and the apostles and saints who laid down their lives for Him. These conferences will also examine Christianity’s role in our lives, from the Early Church to the present day. In addition, we will have an opportunity to study the mystical aspects of Christianity and discover the presence of God in our lives.

“In the 21st century, at a time when Christianity is being marginalized, we have much to learn by looking at the Early Church. The Greco-Roman society, in which Christianity emerged, was very similar to ours. People were self-centered and hedonistic. Their moral values were based on their desires. Yet, the Christians did not conform to that, but broke the norms, living as Christ taught. The message of Christ remains the same. He still offers peace, forgiveness, redemption and eternal life.” – Fr. Panayiotis Papageorgiou, Ph.D.

 The goal of this series of Conferences is to help participants discover or get back in touch with our Christ-centered spirituality and also learn spiritual exercises and disciplines to strengthen and encourage our spiritual resilience in our journey to God’s Kingdom.

The Conferences host prominent theologians and Spiritual Directors who bring to us diverse experiences and much spiritual depth.
