St Philaret’s institute has been holding out the “Meeting of the Lord” Conference for undergraduate and graduate students and younger scholars annually since 1995. The main goal of the conference is to foster discussion surrounding fundamental issues which are relevant today in the fields of Theology, Philosophy, Church History, Ecclesiology and Catechetics, as well as for the development of Christian witness and mission in the modern world, and for tackling various difficult aspects of interfaith dialogue. Traditionally, conference papers are drawn from among the most interesting work of students, scholars and teachers of both schools of theology and secular institutions of higher learning.
