On Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd February 2020 (n.s.), His Grace Bishop Irenei has been invited to lead a Study Weekend hosted by the Orthodox Fellowship of St John the Baptist. The talks delivered by Bishop Irenei over the course of the two days will focus on the spiritual legacy of St Irenaeus of Lyons, on whom Vladyka is a recognised authority, having authored several books and articles about the history and theology of the saint, as well as translating portions of his works from Greek and Latin into English.

The specific title of the Study Weekend, “Truth in the Face of Heresy,” relates to the enormous work undertaken by St Irenaeus of Lyons to articulate the True Faith in the face of provocations and challenges posed by both surrounding culture and internal disputes, making his message timely in every generation that faces similar provocations.

Full details on the Study Weekend, which will take place at the Antiochian Orthodox Parish of St Dunstan in Poole, England, together with registration information for those who might like to attend, are available on the web site of the Fellowship of St John.
