The Pastoral School is pleased to offer both our Church Slavonic Classes this fall semester – beginning October 1 and running for 8 weeks. The beginning class is a requirement for all Pastoral Theology students. Both classes are excellent and taught by very experienced professors. The beginning class is taught by our own Natalia Yurievna Kondrashova!

Present students can simply register in Populi for these courses:

Church Slavonic (this is the required class)
Intermediate/Advanced Church Slavonic (this one is highly recommended)

Alumni, students, and friends should email me to get access to the course they would like to take: fr.gregory.joyce@orthodoxtheologicalschool.org

Cost for each course is $300.

You can learn more about the classes here:

Weekly Educational Offering - Prepare for the Coming Sunday! 
30/9/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

We present here a short educational offering for both children and adults on the upcoming Sunday's principle Gospel reading so that all can better prepare for the Divine Services. Parents are asked to review the children’s portion with their children. It is very important for us to attend the Divine Services on Sundays and whenever else we are able, but in addition it is our spiritual responsibility to educate ourselves and our families in the faith. It is our hope that this mid-week offering will be an aid in this regard. Please contact Fr. Gregory with questions or suggestions.

For Adults: from the writings of Blessed Theophylact

For Children: from the Antiochian Archdiocese (various age groups)

Evangelism: Give a Ride to Church 
28/9/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


UM and EMU students need rides to church. We would like to have one person who is the organizer of these rides. This point person would organize drivers who are willing and able to pick up students on Sunday morning. Please talk to Fr. Gregory if you can organize or if you are willing to drive. A little effort in this way can be a BIG help to students. Speaking of Fr. Gregory, he was picked up at his dorm every Sunday morning by Milo & Olga Radulovic for his entire freshman year. We can’t promise you we’ll get another priest out of this deal, but this is the right thing to do. Please help if you can!

Monday First Things - Teachings of the Holy Fathers 
28/9/20, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


To have faith in Christ means more than simply despising the delights of this life. It means we should bear all our daily trials that may bring us sorrow, distress, or unhappiness, and bear them patiently for as long as God wishes and until He comes to visit us. For it is said, ‘I waited on the Lord and He came to me.'

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
27/9/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable – others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Ephesians 1:22-2:3 & Mark 10:46-52
Tuesday: Ephesians 2:19-3:7 & Mark 11:11-23
Wednesday: Ephesians 3:8-21 & Mark 11:22-26
Thursday: Ephesians 4:14-19 & Mark 11:27-33
Friday: Ephesians 4:17-25 & Mark 12:1-12
Saturday: I Corinthians 1:26-29 & John 8:21-30

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.
