Society of St John Chrysostom Pittsburgh – Spring 2018 Event

Topic: Eastern/Western approaches to Relics and Saints

Date: Monday April 30 – 7:00 PM

Location: St. Anthony Chapel – 1704 Harpster St. Pittsburgh, PA 15212

St. Anthony’s chapel on Pittsburgh’s north side is home to thousands of relics of the saints and has been designated a Historical Landmark by the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation. This is the perfect venue to discuss the common heritage of the saints and their relics in both the eastern and western church with presentations from both the perspectives with discussion and questions encouraged.

Western devotion to the saints and their relics spread in the Roman Catholic community. The extensive collection at this Pittsburgh landmark provides both the example and the spiritual and prayer focus of these practices. The eastern churches also devoted to the examples of the saints have used relics in liturgical practice like the Antimension in Byzantine Liturgy and seen them as sources of miracles throughout the ages.

The Society of St. John Chrysostom promotes understanding of Eastern Christian Churches and promotes Christian unity of east and west while providing material support to Eastern Christian churches.

Opening Prayer Service: Vespers
