37th Annual Eleanor Malburg Eastern Churches Seminar

November 1

Notre Dame College again will debut its 37th Eleanor Malburg Eastern Churches Seminar virtually in 2021.

This year the College’s partnership with the Catholic, Orthodox and Roman Churches will present “After the Deluge: What It Will Mean to be Church in Post-pandemic Times” with the Most Rev. John Michael Botean, the bishop of the Romanian Eparchy of St. George the Martyr in Canton, Ohio.

The video presentation will be available beginning the evening of Monday, November 1, on the College’s website at NotreDameCollege.edu/EasternChurchesSeminar and the Notre Dame YouTube Channel at YouTube.com/NotreDameCollege.

The program is free and open to the public. Donations are accepted.

In the Malburg Lecture, Botean will discuss how Eastern Christians can maintain their religious traditions during and after the pandemic. The bishop suggests adapting to challenging times can be part of the problem for churches.

Botean was ordained a priest May 13, 1986, and ordained bishop August 24, 1996. A native of Canton, he serves as a member of the Committee on the American College of Louvain (Region VI).

The Eleanor Malburg Eastern Churches Seminar involves clergy, bishops, churches, parishioners and colleagues within the Greater Cleveland area sharing knowledge to unite people of different faiths with a deeper understanding of Catholicism.
