June 17-19, 2011 Women's Conference at St. Vladimir's Seminary

Dear Friends of St. Vladimir's Seminary, please join us June 1719, 2011 for our summer conference: Women Disciples of the Lord. Through talks, panels, and a wide array of workshops, participants will explore and articulate the Christ-centered context out of which lay, and especially women's, ministries are to be expressed. Come and listen to women pursuing Gospel-bearing vocations in the Church and parish, home, and society; and take advantage of this opportunity to help our parishes and Churches foster women's and lay vocations.

The conference will also listen to the particular experiences of alumnae of Orthodox theological schools.

On Friday, June 17, 7:30 p.m., Archpriest John Behr, dean of St. Vladimir's Seminary, will present a free and public lecture, Male and Female Created He Them, in the Metropolitan Philip Auditorium of the John G. Rangos Family Foundation Building, with reception to follow.

Our featured speakers are:
* Opening Address: The Joy to Serve - Matushka Juliana Schmemann (via video)
* Eve, Mary, and Us - Presvytera Dr. Kyriaki Karidoyanes FitzGerald
* Light from the Past on Vocations Today - Dr. Mary Ford
* Confessions of a Free-lance Writer: Discerning God's Will in an Unpredictable
Vocation - Khouria Frederica Mathewes-Green
