Topic: Winter Tour of
Hellenic College and Holy Cross School of Theology will be in Ft. Lauderdale
to visit the studios of OCN and participate in an interview for Come Receive
Guest: Representatives of Hellenic
College and Holy Cross School of Theology
HCHC staff leader Sonia Daly along with students Nektarios Antoniou, Marcella
Ballasis, Demetrios Kounavis, and Luke Melackrinos will discuss their tour
and its theme. The theme is taken from the Gospel of Saint Luke, and
underscores that their work is also purposeful and results-oriented:
"The harvest is great but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord
of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest (Luke 10:2)."
The group is quick to point
out the two primary reasons for the choice of the theme.
1) To emphasize the fact that there is truly a great need for
"laborers" in the Orthodox Church - priests and lay people and 2)
To make it clear that Hellenic College and Holy Cross is eager to recruit and
educate qualified persons to serve as laborers in the Lord's harvest.
