Saint Catherine’s Vision’s Young Scholar, Presbytera Athanasia Mellos Kostakis, M.Div., MSW, a student at Boston University’s School of Theology is conducting research for her Doctor of Ministry project thesis.  It is a confidential study on Orthodox Christians in Lay Ministry. 

She was first highlighted at our Divine Compassion and Women of the Church: Theological Perspectives conference in June 2014 and was enthusiastically received by conference participants. SCV’s Young Scholar Initiative promotes dedicated Orthodox Christians whose work reflects the “building up of the body of Christ.” 

Presbytera Athanasia is seeking to interview Orthodox Christians in Lay Ministry. These interviews will be conducted through March 2016.
