ST. CYRIL OF ALEXANDRIA ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN SOCIETY LAUNCHES ONLINE MISSION MODULES
LOS ANGELES, CA (22 January 2013) – St. Cyril of Alexandria Orthodox Christian Society (SCS) launches its online mission modules, building on the established traditions and teachings of the Orthodox Christian Church. SCS seeks to work alongside the existing ministry programs offered by local parishes to prepare the next generation of Orthodox Christians to face the challenges of a new era.
SCS is providing quality education for a broad audience by leveraging modern technology to offer online classes, thus introducing a contemporary method to effectively share the Orthodox Christian faith in our ever-changing global village.
The structure of the SCS program is intended to cover topics that discuss various elements of the Orthodox Christian faith, along with their application in the contemporary world. For the spring term, commencing February 11, 2013, SCS will be offering three courses that cover Faith and Reason, Church History, and Liturgical Theology.
Our mission is to establish a community of Orthodox Christian theological fellowship whereby prospective and current young servants, scholars and missionaries can utilize various resources for spiritual growth and leadership development in present or future Christian ministry through affordable and attainable education.
The true value of education starts with experience and praxis. Orthodox Christian education is about actualizing theological dogmas into a lifestyle of communal mission and service. We invite you to participate in our modules to experience the depth, diversity and modernity of our Orthodox Christian faith through the eyes of Church Fathers, History, Liturgical practice, and the contemporary desire to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ (Matthew 28:16).

On Saturday, August 18th in San Jose, CA, lecturer Michael Wingert has been invited to give a talk a talk in honor of the Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary at St. Mary’s Syriac Orthodox Church of the Bay Area.
The Commemoration of St. Mary in Orthodox Christian Theology
Have you ever wondered what is the purpose behind the commemoration of St. Mary? The ancient Christian (Orthodox) understanding of St. Mary differs considerably from later Christian traditions such as those belonging to the Roman Catholic and the Protestant. Being conscious of who Mary is and contemplative of her life is very important for establishing (for new Christians) or maintaining a deep and meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ.
Evening prayer begins at 6:00pm, followed by Wingert’s lecture.
Emmanuel Gergis has been invited to lecture on “Orthodox Christian Values and Culture” at Dominican University. The Lecture will start at 6:30 p.m. CST Tuesday, October 9th at the school of Arts and Sciences. Dominican University is a private Roman Catholic university located in River Forest, IL.
