The Antiochian House of Studies is pleased to announce a Western Rite Concentration.
The Western Rite Vicariate of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America was blessed by Patriarch Alexander and Metropolitan ANTONY Bashir in 1958. Because of its unique “Western expression” (Metropolitan PHILIP) and liturgical traditions, a separate concentration seems advisable for those persons who attend Western Rite parishes, and particularly those who hope to serve in some ministerial or clerical capacity, as deemed appropriate and blessed by the Metropolitan. Specific courses are now designated for the Western Rite Concentration, offered for those who come from, wish to serve in, or want to learn about the Western expression of the Orthodox faith as it is blessed for use in the Antiochian Patriarchate.
Course requirements and more details to be posted soon.
