Professors and students from Finland’s Orthodox Theological School visited the Theological School of Halki

On Saturday, 18 May 2024, a group of ten professors and students from the Orthodox Theological School of the Autonomous Church of Finland in Joensuu visited the Theology School of Halki. The delegation was led by Hieromonk Damaskinos Xenofontinos, a Finnish-born professor at the School, and Elder Michael Sidoroff, the Director of the School.

The visitors were warmly received in the Great Synod Hall by His Grace Bishop Kassianos of Aravissos, the Abbot of the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, who welcomed them and spoke about the history and significant contributions of the School to the Orthodox Church and the broader inter-Christian community.

Following this, the Abbot welcomed a group of forty pilgrims from the parish of Zoodochos Pigi in Dafni, part of the Holy Archdiocese of Athens, led by their parish priest, Fr. Simeon Synodinos.

Both groups were given guided tours of the nave of the Holy Trinity, the historic classrooms, and the renowned Library of the School, providing them with a deeper understanding of the rich heritage and educational legacy of the Theological School of Halki.
