St. Andrew House - Center for Orthodox Christian Studies To Host Colloquium on Orthodox Christianity for Lutheran Clergy in Detroit Sept. 10 - 11

With last year's conference geared toward's Anglicans, this year Lutherans will be the priority.

The article follows:

DETROIT, Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- St. Andrew House - Center for Orthodox
Christian Studies will host "Faith of Our Fathers: A Colloquium on
Orthodoxy for Lutherans" Sept. 10-11 for Lutheran clergy and their spouses
and Lutheran lay leaders from the Great Lakes region of the United States
and Canada.

The colloquium is the second in an ongoing series sponsored by St.
Andrew House to present the basic precepts of Orthodox Christianity to
clergy and lay leaders of other Christian faiths. St. Andrew House
conducted its first colloquium, for Anglicans, in January of this year.

The colloquium will begin with registration at 5:00 p.m. on Monday,
Sept. 10 and conclude with a farewell reception at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday,
Sept. 11. It will feature a Great Vespers service on Monday evening at
nearby St. Raphael of Brooklyn Orthodox Church celebrating the Nativity of
the Most Holy Theotokos.

After Vespers, there will be a buffet dinner at the retreat center,
with the colloquium's keynote address by the Most Rev. Nathaniel,
Archbishop of Detroit and the Romanian Episcopate of the Orthodox Church in
America, and founder and president of St. Andrew House.

Among other speakers will be the Very Rev. Patrick Henry Reardon of All
Saints Orthodox Church, Chicago; the Rev. Dr. Hieromonk Calinic Berger of
St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary; and Deacon Gregory Roeber,
professor at the Pennsylvania State University.

The registration fee for the conference is $75 per person. It includes
meals and refreshments at the retreat center. Rooms at the center may be
reserved for one to three nights, Sunday through Tuesday, at the rate of
$95 per night.

While the colloquium is designed for Lutherans, it is also open to
Orthodox Christians and members of other Christian faiths. Seating is
limited, however, and priority will be given to Lutherans.

radio station, will record colloquium presentations. Compact disks of the
recordings, in MP3 and standard audio format, may be ordered in advance or
