CrossRoadSome of the participants who enjoyed the 2016 CrossRoad Institute.

This year’s CrossRoad Summer Institute will be held on the campus of Hellenic College/Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology here in June and July 2017.

The ten-day program is especially designed for Orthodox Christian high school juniors and seniors—ages 16 through 18—who wish to “step outside their comfort zone to encounter Christ in the face of their neighbors” while exploring ways to make major life decisions in the context of their Orthodox faith.  Courses in theology and Scripture will be offered, in addition to excursions into Boston and its environs, parish visits and engagement with the city’s homeless.  Fellowship—including a day at the beach—rounds out the Institute’s agenda.

CrossRoad Session One will be held June 17-27, while Session Two will gather July 5-15.  The Institute—organized annually by Hellenic College’s Office of Vocation and Ministry—is open to Orthodox Christian students of all jurisdictions.

Detailed information and application forms are available on-line.
