Christ the Savior Orthodox Church
Orthodox Church in America
Religious Institute

Every year, Christ the Savior hosts a Religious Institute series in the month of October. Every week we offer a new lecture on different topics: sometimes a study of a book of the Bible; or a discussion on a topic of Orthodox faith. Many different famous Orthodox speakers have come to these talks over the years, including bishops, abbots, theologians, and seminary teachers. Starting this past year, our lectures are now being recorded and offered online.
