St Vladimir Seminary to hold open house for prospective students

Saint Vladimir Orthodox Theological Seminary here will open its doors to prospective students November 14-16.

“The program is designed to provide a first-hand experience of seminary life to those interested in ministry or those desiring to deepen their understanding of the faith,” according to the Very Rev. Steven Belonick, seminary spokesperson. “Participants will attend classes, worship in the chapel, tour the campus and its resources, meet faculty members and students, and learn about degree programs, financial aid, and the admission process. Interviews will be available by appointment.”

Established in 1938, Saint Vladimir Seminary is a graduate school of theology that offers a Master of Divinity degree, a Master of Arts degree in Christian Education, Liturgical Music, and General Theology, a Master of Theology degree, and Doctor of Ministry degree.

There is no cost to participate in the three-day open house, although attendees are expected to cover their travel expenses to and from the seminary.
