On August 13, 2022, Saint Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary (SVOTS) hosted its annual Education Day Online, a six-hour “Zoomathon” where participants listened and posed questions during discussions led by Seminary professors and guest scholars.

The online event drew around 730 registrants from more than 20 different countries. The discussions—which included the future Orthodox biblical studies, liturgical theology, abortion, and other topics—were led by His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon, board chair of SVOTS, archbishop of Washington, and Metropolitan of All America and Canada (OCA); The Very Rev. Dr. Chad Hatfield, president of SVOTS; The Very Rev. Archimandrite Dr. Maximos Constas; The Rev. Dr. Bogdan Bucur; The Rev. Ignatius Green; The Rev. Dn. Dr. Michael Azar; The Rev. Dn. Dr. Vitaly Permiakov; Dr Ionuț-Alexandru Tudorie, academic dean of SVOTS; Dr. Ana S. Iltis; Dr. Michael Legaspi; Dr. Matthew Vest; and Dr. Harrison Russin; Dr. Peter Bouteneff served as host and moderator.

A replay of Education Day Online is now available to watch on YouTube.

Education Day Online, in addition to serving as an educational forum for the public, also helps raise funds to educate seminarians. This year's event raised approx. $47 thousand (more than $15k above SVOTS' fundraising goal for the event!) thanks to the generosity of the many participants and sponsors. Glory to God!
