Fr. Alexander Rentel, Asst. Professor of Canon Law and Byzantine Studies at St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary delivered a lecture entitled "Marriage: A Sacrament under Siege" as part of the 35th Annual Adult Education Lecture Series held at St. Tikhon's Seminary on Tuesday, October 4th.
Fr Alexander's insightful and thought provoking presentation was an examination of the Church's teaching on the Mystery of Holy Matrimony...
... in the face of the challenges of a high divorce rate, civil ceremonies, common law unions, widespread cohabitation and the issue of legalizing "gay marriages."
A complete videotape of Fr. Alexander's timely and informative lecture, including the questions and answers, as well as the entire series, will be availble through St Tikhon's Bookstore after the conclusion of the series.
