2024 CrossRoad Summer Institute Session 1 Begins in Boston, MA

Session 1 of the 2024 CrossRoad Summer Institute is off to a great start! In the last few days, participants have arrived in Boston, MA and begun forming genuine, lasting friendships. In addition to participating in liturgical services at @helleniccollegeholycross and visiting Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral of New England, students have engaged in discussions focusing on Orthodoxy and mental health, pop culture and technology, and the sanctification of time and money. They have also spent time exploring Boston, visiting the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and its Byzantine and Behrakis Gallery, Boston Commons, Quincy Market, and an adventure ropes course.

CrossRoad is a ten-day academic summer institute that prepares high school juniors and seniors to make big life decisions and invites them to connect with the Orthodox Christian theological and spiritual tradition in a deep and meaningful way. CrossRoad offers a space for young people to form authentic and lifelong friendships, ask hard questions, and explore their calling as an Orthodox Christian in the 21st century.
