        • You have successfully finished the first half of the course. Now on to Week 5!

          There is nothing you cannot do if you have made it to the fifth week of our course. Feasting and fasting – these are the main topics of the following seven days. We will read the press, the Gospels (this goes without saying), and listen to Frederica Mathewes-Green (Do you remember her?). Do not be afraid of the test, it will not be so difficult! Good luck!

            We have now finished studying our main book “Orthodox Mysteries” and are ready to proceed to more difficult things. We will start studying morning and evening prayers. Do you pray in English? Give it a try and you will see that it will not only increase your vocabulary and allow you to learn connotations of already familiar words, but will also help you focus during prayer time. During this week, we will also learn about British saints and Anthony of Sourozh, whose sermons we have already read. It will be a whirlwind week, so fasten your seatbelts and proceed to the tasks!

              Do you have enough space left in your vocabulary books? This week, we will not only be praying in the mornings, but in the evenings, as well.
