Potluck Patristics — Book Club

Fr. Vasileios Flegas leads our relaxed and informal weekly book club. The group gathers to discuss the writings of Church Fathers, both modern and ancient, but the readings serve as a springboard to dive into how the writings relate to our modern lives. The primary intent of Potluck Patristics is to offer fellowship, as we support one another in our walk with Christ through the Church Fathers.

While it’s best if everyone reads the book, you are welcome to participate even if you don’t! The group meets regularly on Wednesday nights at 8:00pm.

ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP

OCF is the official collegiate campus ministry program under the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America. OCF transforms the lives of college students in the United States and Canada by guiding them along the path to Jesus Christ through His Church, cultivating a campus community of worship, witness, service, fellowship and education.

Our Vision
To be the loving presence of Christ and the Orthodox Church on college campuses;
To be an integral part of students’ spiritual formation by challenging them to explore the Faith; and
To inspire students to commit to living an Orthodox Christian way of life daily.

Join us on zoom.

If you’re interested in some virtual bonding, the Young Adults are hosting a “virtual coffee hour” at 12 every Sunday.
