As Executive Director of the Missions Institute of Orthodox Christianity, established in 2010, Father Luke works alongside Saint Vladimir’s Seminary Chancellor, Archpriest Chad Hatfield and Dean, Archpriest John Behr, members of the Institute’s Board of Trustees.
Meanwhile, Priest Maximus Regis Urbanowicz, an OCA missionary who serves at the Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Washington DC, will speak in the Alaskan interior during a week-long stay in Fairbanks.
Father Maximus is president of “Gospel to All Nations” and has spent 23 years holding evangelistic gatherings across 44 nations, including Russia.
During his stay in Fairbanks, Father Maximus will be hosted by the Orthodox Christian Fellowship that meets weekly on the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus. He will hold afternoon seminars at 1:00 p.m. on March 16 and 17 at Schaible Auditorium on the UAF campus, and will speak at evening gatherings at 7:30 p.m. at the same location.
Father Maximus also will present retreats for men and women. On Sunday, March 18, he will concelebrate at the 9:00 a.m. Divine Liturgy at Fairbanks’ Saint Herman Church — “the most northern Orthodox parish in America!”
All of the Fairbanks events are open to the community and members of all faith traditions.
