2022 registration is now open for the Russian-language "Know thy Faith" course of spiritual in-depth ongoing catechetical talks for clergy and laity. The course has the blessing of His Eminence Nicholas, Metropolitan of Eastern America & New York, First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, and is conducted by diocesan cleric Abbot Arseny (Manko; rector of Sts. Cosmas & Damian Church in Passaic, NJ).
Talks are usually held once a week. Set dates and times will be determined with the newly organized lesson groups. Talks last an average of roughly two hours. Follow-up discussion and questions will require time based on the need to acquaint oneself with the material, and do not require attendance by the whole study group. The approximate duration of the basic course is about three years.
A copy of Holy Scripture and access to the Internet are the only requirements for participation.
Talks are conducted in Russian. Native English speakers who are interested in doing so are invited to assist in organizing these courses in English.
