The Center for Family Care is hosting a conference titled “The Orthodox Family in a Changing World” in an effort to explore critical issues in the family life-cycle and practical methods to address them in the parish and the home. The conference will be held September 20-23, 2017 in Pittsburgh, PA.
The conference welcomes clergy, pastoral-care workers, ministry leaders, and laypersons interested in the development of family ministry in their parishes. A generous grant from Leadership 100 will aid in funding the event.
A reduced ‘early bird’ registration rate is offered through July 30th.
