Philips Lecture Series
The parish of St. Andrew has been blessed to receive a generous donation from the estate of one of our families to establish an Orthodox speaker’s series. Specifically, under the direction of the estate of Anne Phillips, a trust was created to fund a speakers program at St. Andrews Church, resulting in the establishment of the Anne and Theodore Phillips Paschal Lecture Series. The overarching theme of this series is: The Ancient Christian Faith Speaks to the Modern World.
COMING THIS YEAR:
6TH Annual Anne and Theodore Philips Paschal Lecture Series
