If You’re Happy and You Know It, Cross Yourself
We begin our month-long look at Children and the Church with Fr. Stelyios Muksuris of Dormition Greek Orthodox Church in Aliquippa, PA, and Professor of Liturgy and Theology at Byzantine Catholic Seminary in Pittsburgh, PA. He will offer us practical tips on how to engage our children in the services, how we can cultivate a sense of joy about worship in our homes, and how we can persevere as parents even when we have moments of fear or dread about trying to get our children to sit through a service. We also hear from Chris Vlahonasios, the founder and director of Byzanfest – the world’s first Orthodox Christian short-film festival which is entirely online. Learn more about his work on his blog.
