Online Home Study

Because each person is busy, we now offer our CATECHISM online as a Home Study. This way you can study at your own pace.
This class should be taken by everyone who has never studied the Orthodox faith, whether they were born into the Church, recently converted or who desire to convert to Orthodoxy.

To fulfill the requirements for this class, meet with Fr. Alexander and set up a schedule of study, where he can guide you in your spiritual journey and help you with your questions.

    The Council in Crete

    Monday, February 26

    6:30pm

    St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church

    Fifty years in the planning, what was to be heralded by Orthodox Christians around the world as the Holy and Great Council of the Orthodox Church was convened by the Ecumenical Patriarch of the Orthodox Church, June 19-26, 2016, in Kolymvari, Crete.

    While all autocephalous Orthodox churches were summoned, for various reasons not all chose to send official representatives. Among the documents issued by the Council, the document on ecumenism has proved to be the most controversial. All Holy Spirit (Greek) and St. Nicholas (Serbian) Orthodox churches cordially invite you to hear Orthodox theologian Professor George Demacopoulos's frank and expert discussion on this important topic. Light refreshments provided. For more information, contact Dr. Nicolae Roddy, Professor of Theology, nroddy@creighton.edu

    Our Faith

    The Church
    The life of the Orthodox Church perpetuates and fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ. The close association between Christ and His Church is reflected in the images from the Scriptures which declare that Christ is the Head and the Church is His Body, and that Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His bride.
