BOSTON – On October 19 and 20, Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology will host a conference titled Reflections on the Beloved Elder in America: Gerasimos Papadopoulos. His Grace Bishop Gerasimos of blessed memory was greatly esteemed for his writings and much loved for his personal qualities of deep piety and humility. He taught and resided at HCHC for many years until his passing in 1995, fittingly on the Feast of the Holy Spirit. His Grace was laid to rest behind Holy Cross Chapel, close to the Maliotis Cultural Center, where the conference will be held.

An international roster of distinguished speakers, including His Eminence Former Archbishop Demetrios, will explore different aspects of His Grace’s life and work, and a documentary film about him will be premiered. Those wishing to attend the conference in person are advised to register in advance, as seating will be limited.  The conference will also be livestreamed on the site.
