Monday, Nov. 14th, Metropolitan John of Korca, Albania met with seminarians and their families, faculty, staff and other members of the community to give a presentation entitled : Orthodox Missions and the Resurrection of the Church in Albania.
This presentation included a stunning pictorial account of the amazing progress that has been enjoyed by the Orthodox Church in Albania. Several pictures of the newly restored monasteries, seminaries, Churches and hospitals were contrasted against the destruction the Church suffered at the hands of the communist government.
Since 1991, the re-established Church has built over 83 new churches and five monasteries. Some 72 churches and monuments have been renovated and restored and over 140 churches have been repaired.
