Does anyone remember under what patronage the chapel was? I've seen it attributed to Our Lady of Kazan and to St Michael. Anyone know for sure? And, is it still there - or was it relocated to Scranton when the Byzantine program went there?

Many years,

Neil

Not too sure Neil, however, I believe, it may have transferred back to Fordham since the program at the university of Scranton in Eastern Christian Studies no longer exists... frown

Fr. Thomas Sable SJ is still there, the Center for Eastern Christian Studies has been renamed Ciszek Hall and still houses a Byzantine Chapel and Library, and there remain two undergrad and two grad courses in Eastern Christianity in the Theology department.

Thanks for the update Fr. Lance!!! I thought Fr. Tom was still there...I believe at one point I saw he was administering St. John's (?) BCC...(Sorry, can't remember the name, I attended St. Marys...) Is Fr. John Levko still there? I know he was well respected in the Math department and I took a "reader" with him. I believe, in Byzantine Spirituality...Also, with 2 undergrad and 2 grad courses I am assuming there is no longer a program for a "concentration" in Eastern Christian Studies...If anyone speaks with Fr. Tom or For John...Please let them know Chris Gombos (class of '93' and former student assistant) sends his best!!!
