Day 5 – June 2015

Yesterday, we had our second day of theology and scripture classes where Dr. Torrance spoke on the theology of the Holy Trinity and Dr. Legaspi explored the stories of David and Moses in the Old Testament. These lectures have sparked thoughtful and insightful questions and comments from the participants!

Following the lectures, we took our second adventure into downtown Boston where we had lunch and walked around Faneuil Hall, one of the oldest, most historic sites in the country!

Last evening concluded with a parish visit to Holy Dormition Greek Orthodox Church in Somerville, MA and was followed by a very special staff-led session in the Holy Cross Chapel titled, “Night with the Saints.” In this session, the participants were divided into small groups to “meet” different Saints, venerate icons and relics in the Holy Cross Chapel, and learn what sainthood means. The takeaway of the evening was that every person has the opportunity and calling to be a Saint.
