It’s my pleasure to announce one of our newest speakers, Father David Bissias! Father David graduated from Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. Upon ordination, he served as deacon to (then) Bishop Iakovos of Chicago. Since 2004, aside from becoming a parish priest, he also serves as a Special Administrative Assistant to Metropolitan Iakavos of Chicago. Additionally he is a member of the Metropolis Council and the Bishop’s Task Force on AIDS. Father David’s current book, “The Mystery of Healing: Oil, Anointing, and the Unity of the Local Church” will soon be followed by a new book on “The Question of Gender: Male and Female in Orthodox Tradition”. Please take a look at Fr. David’s speaker page, and help me welcome him into the OSB!
