'Life with the Saints': Details of the Institute's summer term course announced
The summer term (Trinity Term) of the Institute's Certificate Program in Orthodox Studies by Distance Learning will begin on 19th May, welcoming both existing students as well as new enrollees into a brand-new module being offered for the first time this summer: CS06 - Life with the Saints.

We are accepting applications now for new students to start on the Certificate Program this summer with this new module: read about the module, and then learn about the Certificate Program and apply on-line.
