Church School Teacher Development Workshop

St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church, West St. Paul, MN, will welcome AODCE Director Carole Buleza to conduct a teacher development workshop this spring. Please join us on Saturday, May 4, 2019, to learn more about serving your parish community as a church school teacher or substitute.

Courses for the day include "Overview of Orthodoxy," during which we’ll review the foundational doctrines of our Faith and interactive ways of teaching our children as they grow. "New Methods in Teaching" will have us discussing lesson planning, productive classroom environments and brain-based learning. Our final course, "Moral Issues," will allow us to explore topics our older youth face and the Orthodox perspective on each.

To register for this event, please see the attached documents or contact Christina Worrall at worral.christina@gmail.com or 571-334-2306.

If you are interested in hosting a teacher training for your parish, please contact Leslie Atherholt at aodce.events@gmail.com or 717-747-5221.

Spring 2019 Issue of DIAKONIA Available Online

The Spring 2019 issue of DIAKONIA, the newsletter of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Women of North America, is now available online. This issue features the Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America, and includes a message from His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph. Sayidna writes, "Every year, the Metropolitan gives the Antiochian Women a project for a charitable and worthy cause. Over the decades, we have helped those within and those without the Archdiocese, both here and overseas. This year we have a special project that will touch the lives of both adults and children in our Archdiocese. That project is the building of a new Cathedral at the Antiochian Village.

In this issue, Bishop Basil also reflects: "The ministry of women within and to the Body of Christ, whether to Our Savior personally or to the least of His brethren, has been shown forth in so many lives of the saints—most especially of the Most Holy Mother of God, the Myrrh-bearing Women, and other female saints of the Church."

Also included are messages from Spiritual Advisor Fr. Christopher Morris, President Jaclyn Al-Hanna-Ferris, introductions to the diocesan board, and reports and photos from diocesan chapters. Read the issue here!
