St. Basil Seminary, Methuen, MA


St. Gregory the Theologian Seminary, Newton Centre, Newton, MA

Holy Cross School of Theology, Brookline, MA

A special, unique and historic arrangement was made in the ’70’s between the Melkite Eparchy of Newton and the Greek Orthodox Seminary. The Melkite seminarians would reside at St. Gregory, have morning and evening meals, liturgical services and take some classes there…those relevant to our Melkite Church. Also, they would commute daily to Holy Cross and, because our mutual patrimony, spirituality and Byzantine life style was, for the most part the same, would take the majority of the theology courses, taught by Orthodox faculty members, with the Orthodox seminarians. This continued well into the ’90’s before transferring our students to Pittsburgh.
