The Dre's Mission

The Department of Religious Education (DRE) joyfully focuses on connecting you with Christ, His Church, and His Grace through practical, ancient, and immersive Orthodox teachings for your daily life. We actively enhance this connection and foster spiritual growth by deepening your “grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18). This approach nurtures an interconnection between mind, body, and soul—cultivating the inner presence of God.
