College Students Invited to Weekend Retreat, Coinciding with OED 2012

College students from across North America are invited to enjoy a weekend of fellowship, prayer and interaction with their peers and some of today's top Orthodox theologians and teachers at St. Vladimir's Seminary here October 5–7, 2012.

The weekend retreat coincides with the seminary's annual Orthodox Education Day (OED) on Saturday, October 6th, the theme of which is "Inklings of Glory: Godward Journeys with Lewis and Tolkien."

Among the special activities planned are a presentation, "Tips for Building Your Orthodox Christian Fellowship," by Andrew Boyd, Director of Youth, Young Adult, and Campus Ministry for the Orthodox Church in America; a lecture and discussion on C.S. Lewis by Priest Andrew Cuneo, professor of English at Saint Katherine's College, San Diego, CA; and a lecture on J.R.R. Tolkien by Dr. Christopher Mitchell of Wheaton College. Parish book study groups and individuals are encouraged to read Lewis’s book The Abolition of Man, for discussion at OED.

Students are also invited to enjoy an excursion to New York City during the three-day gathering.

The cost for the retreat is minimal—only $5.00 which includes Friday dinner, Saturday brunch, and Saturday dinner.  Education Day food booth tickets will be available for purchase on Saturday afternoon.  Transportation and meals during the excursion to New York City are extra.
