On Saturday, November 8, 7:00 p.m., His Eminence Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, Chairman of the Department for External Church Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate, will deliver a free and public lecture at St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary (OCA).
His Eminence will speak on “Primacy and Conciliarity from an Orthodox Perspective,” a topic discussed at the 13th plenary session of the Joint Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Orthodox and the Roman Catholic Churches, of which Metropolitan Hilarion was a key participant.
Just prior to the lecture, His Eminence will receive an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree, bestowed by the seminary’s Board of Trustees and faculty. Metropolitan Hilarion is a member of the seminary board, ex officio, and also author of the Orthodox Christianity Series published by SVS Press.
The academic convocation and lecture will be held in the Metropolitan Philip Auditorium of the John G. Rangos Family Building on the seminary campus, and a public reception will follow. Because of the special convocation and lecture, the seminary’s normal Saturday evening liturgical schedule has been changed: Great Vespers will be celebrated at 5 p.m.
