To all our friends, please come on Columbus Day weekend if you are local to New York City to hear us in concert at the 50th anniversary of St. Vladimir’s Seminary’s Ed Day. We will be debuting much of the music soon to be released off of our upcoming Christmas CD. Stay tuned….
This year’s Orthodox Education Day (OED) is a special one. Join us as we celebrate not one, but two fiftieth-year commemorations: fifty years of OED and fifty years of St. Vladimir’s Seminary (SVS) Press!
On Saturday, October 6, we are hosting activities and lectures all day, starting at 10am, to celebrate these two milestones in the history of St. Vladimir’s Seminary. Highlights will include a Hierarchical Divine Liturgy with the relics of St. Innocent and the Boston Byzantine Choir, public lectures, children and teen’s activities, food, music, book sales, a Keynote Address by John Maddex of Ancient Faith Ministries, and a special first-hand look back at the history of SVS Press and OED led by former Press Director Theodore Bazil and Professor Emeritus David Drillock.
The address by Mr. Maddex will be particularly relevant as we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of SVS Press, which was founded in 1968 and remains the most active publisher of Orthodox Christian literature in the English language. Maddex is CEO of Ancient Faith Ministries, which operates both Ancient Faith Radio and Ancient Faith Publishing, another major publisher of Orthodox works.
Admission to Orthodox Education Day is free. We hope you are able to celebrate with us! Please do spread the word and share the flyer at your parishes and with your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. May the mission of OED Day and SVS Press—spreading the Gospel—continue to bear much fruit for our Lord!
