Alex, and Dr. Woloschak, with other attendees at Patriarchate meeting (photo: Nikolaos Manginas)Three representatives from St. Vladimir's Seminary—the Very Reverend Dr. John Behr, Dean; the Very Reverend Dr. Alex Rentel, Assistant Professor of Canon Law and Byzantine Studies; and Dr. Gayle E. Woloschak, Sessional Professor of Bioethics—were among a group of 30 Orthodox Christian scholars who participated in a gathering at the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople in Istanbul, Turkey, on January 4-5, 2016. The meeting was convened by His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew for the purpose of establishing connections with, and hearing from, theologians and academics from throughout the Orthodox Christian world, especially in light of the forthcoming Holy and Great Council.

The Seminary Dean expressed appreciation for "...the opportunity to hear reflections by His Eminence, Senior Metropolitan John of Pergamon on the preparations for the Council and to engage in dialogue for almost four hours, with His Eminence, sharing our thoughts and concerns in a very engaging and stimulating conversation."
