NTOM conference set for February 26-27
This event is for everyone – not married, married, celibate, widowed, divorced!
Save the date for the Orthodox Christian Perspectives retreat to be held Friday and Saturday, February 26-27, 2016. The topic will be "Marriage and Family: An Invitation to Love." Our guest speaker will be Dr. Philip Mamalakis, who serves as Associate Professor of Pastoral Care at Hellenic College/Holy Cross in Brookline, MA.
Some key ideas that Dr. Philip touches upon: "Marriage is a journey of discovery." Marriage entails "humility which is the opposite of self-seeking." It requires "good listening" skills. Christ is the head of the couple on their journey in life. He likes the icon of the Resurrection as a symbol of marriage. Christ holds both Adam and Eve by the wrist to bring them to salvation.
All are welcome to attend and bring family and friends.
