We will host the first annual St. Irenaeus Institute Anniversary and Celebration event on Thursday evening, August 23 – the feast day of St. Irenaeus of Lyons on the Orthodox Church calendar. This is our annual kickoff event for the upcoming year of lectures and educational programs. It will begin at 6 pm and conclude about 9pm. Please note that we will be gathering at the beautiful St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church Family Life Center on South Outer Forty Road facing Highway 64 just west of 270. I’m sure that most of you have passed by it at some point. Please see the attached flyer for event info and directions.
This FREE event (a freewill donation is optional) will feature the Very Rev. John H. Erickson, renowned professor of church history and canon law and former dean of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary. We will have a short program prior to Fr. John’s lecture as well have refreshments on hand and some time for fellowship.
SPECIAL NOTE: On Wednesday evening, August 22, Fr. John will be co-celebrate liturgical vespers in honor of St. Irenaeus’ feast at All Saints of North America Antiochian Orthodox Church, located at 2550 Schuetz Road in Maryland Heights. There will also be a special blessing service as well. To get there take 270 to Page Avenue, go east about ½ mile to Schuetz Road and get in the left turn lane. Make a left at Schuetz and go down several blocks. The church is on the right just before you get to Fee Fee Rd. If you’ve driven past Fee Fee you have gone too far. There is parking in the rear of the building.
