“If you are a theologian, you will pray truly. And if you pray truly, you are a theologian.” - Evagrius the Solitary of Pontus.
Studying Orthodox theology is much more than an academic venture. Rather, it is the formation of a human being to reach their full potential, reflecting the image and likeness of Jesus Christ.

Our dedicated pastoral program is a vehicle to ensure the students, faculty and staff are spiritually nourished. It includes the annual Lenten retreat, pilgrimage, vesper prayers and liturgies.
