Orientale Lumen XXII Conference Scheduled for June

Fairfax, Virginia – The 22nd Annual Orientale Lumen Conference will be held on June 18-21, 2018 in Washington, DC on the theme: “Sister Churches: Fact or Fiction?” The conference is open to the public but advanced reservations are required. The agenda will include six plenary sessions of lectures and discussion of the conference theme, ecumenical prayer services from the Byzantine Christian tradition, and fellowship at meals and evening receptions.

Plenary speakers for this conference will include:

• Patriarch Emeritus Gregorios III, retired primate of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church of Antioch, Alexandria and Jerusalem
• Father Hyacinthe Destivelle, OP, from the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity in the Vatican
• Father John Ford, CSC, professor emeritus of ecumenism of The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC
• Father Robert Kaslyn, SJ, professor of canon law at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC
• Dr. Will Cohen from the University of Scranton and author of “The Concept of ‘Sister Churches’ in Catholic-Orthodox Relations since Vatican II”
• Mr. Michael Haldas, author, educator and lecturer from Bethesda, MD
• Father Ron Roberson, CSP, will be the moderator

A pre-recorded video by Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware), professor emeritus from Oxford University, on the conference theme will be shown at the opening session.
The conference fee is $395 per person and includes all meals and other conference expenses. Early registration is available until May 1st for $350 per person. Overnight accommodations at the Washington Retreat House, location of all events and meals, can be reserved through the conference office for $80/night per person. Space is limited for the conference, so reservations should be made early.

Sounds like a very interesting conference, but why such a dearth of Orthodox presenters, unlike in past conferences?

We DO have 2 out of 6 speakers that are Orthodox, our normal mix -- 2 Orthodox, 2 Roman Catholic and 2 Eastern Catholic. Although Dr Will Cohen teaches at Scranton, he is a subdeacon of the OCA and wrote his doctoral dissertation on this exact topic. We also had Archbishop Job of Telmessos confirmed to be a speaker until a month ago when it was announced that Pope Francis will be visiting the WCC in Geneva the same week as our conference. Since the archbishop represents the Ecumenical Patriarch to the WCC and lives in Geneva, he had to cancel at the last minute. I've tried inviting other Orthodox hierarchs since then, but so far they have other commitments. We also have a video by Metropolitan Kallistos for the opening session as an added bonus.
