The Pastoral School of the Diocese of Chicago & Mid-America is committed to making high quality Orthodox theological education as accessible to as many interested students as possible. Based on this commitment we have made it possible for students to study either full time or part time in our seminary, have instituted summer courses, and accept applicants in both the fall and spring semesters.

Applications for admission for the spring semester are due February 1, 2017. Classes begin February 13, 2017. Applications forms can be found here:

Potential Graduation Symposium - Call for Submissions + Help Needed

Please note that we are working on creating a small symposium on Sunday, June 25, 2017 after Liturgy at the Diocesan Cathedral. This symposium would include a presentation from an honored guest, one of our graduating students, as well as one of our instructors.
  1. This is a call for submissions for the June 25 symposium from:
    • Graduating Seniors
    • Pastoral School Instructors
    • Deadline for submissions is June 1, 2017 to
    • Papers should be approximately 15 pages in length using Turabian style
    • Oral presentations should be approximately 20 minutes in length with 10 minutes for questions
    • A round table will be held following the presentations to allow for further discussion
  2. If you would like to help with the symposium please contact me. A little assistance would go a long way to making this an event that we, as a school, can be thankful to have sponsored.
Graduating seniors will be expected to attend the symposium. The pubic will be welcome. Presentations will be available after the symposium as audio and video files.

Pastoral School Cafe Press Store

We would like to call your attention to the fact that we have a Cafe Press store in the Pastoral School. You can buy our famous coffee mugs and more by clicking HERE.

At this time of year, as we prepare to exchange gifts in remembrance of the Magi who brought gifts to our newly born Savior, please consider a gift from the Cafe Press store that will be both unique for the person who receives it and benefit the Pastoral School.
