The Three Hierarchs Academic Lecture Series was established to celebrate our fathers among the saints, Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian & John Chrysostom, Ecumenical Teachers of Christendom and the patron saints of Greek Letters and learning.

This earthly trinity has taught us in their writings and through their lives to worship and glorify the Holy Trinity, the One God in three Persons. 

We have received a most sacred inheritance as their descendants; an inheritance shared in this Lecture Series by these pious Christian and distinguished academics.
