2021 registration is now open for the Russian-language "Know thy Faith" course of spiritual in-depth ongoing catechetical talks for clergy and laity. Classes will be held online via Zoom.
The course has the blessing of His Eminence Hilarion, 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. Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, courses are now available online.
A copy of Holy Scripture and access to the Internet are the only requirements for participation.
For preliminary registration and with any questions, please call or text at +1 (201) 873-5353. This number is also accessible on the messenger apps Viber, WhatsApp, and Telegram, or visit the course website at www.catechism718.org.
