Beginning October 9th, join Fr. Nebojsa Pantic from Saint Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church Monday nights for an overall look at the liturgical services as well as prayer services most often used in the life of the Church.
Join live on Zoom, 6:15pm Pacific Time, 9:15pm Eastern.
We will begin the course with a general overview of the Divine Services that can happen daily, weekly, and year around. Then we will take a look at the services in the Small Evhologion (prayer book) that is commonly used by priests, so we will have a Birds Eye view of what services are available to Orthodox Christians. View the full Autumn schedule below!
Fr. Nebojsa Pantic (Fr. Nebo) is a Serbian Orthodox Christian from Novi Sad, Serbia, who immigrated to and grew up in Northern Illinois (Gurnee). He went straight to seminary after High School and graduated from Hellenic College (2006) and Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology (2009) and recently finished an MBA at CAL STATE – Sacramento (2022). He made his home with his wife Stephanie in the Bay Area – California, and has served throughout the Bay Area including Oakland, Vallejo, and currently in San Jose. He has 2 small Children, Paraskevi (9) and Elias (5). He has a love for languages, music, and education! His aspiration for the this class is that we provide an opportunity for Orthodox Christians to get to the “why” and “how” of Orthodoxy, so they may more fully encounter God. By taking this brief history class during Lent, we can be inspired and equipped to more fully encounter our Lord’s Death and Resurrection this year.
