ORTHODOX ACADEMY OF CRETE
The Orthodox Academy of Crete is a public welfare institution in canonical relationship with the Holy Metropolis of Kisamos and Selinon; it operates under the spiritual auspices of His All Holiness the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople. The OAC is administered by a 10 member board under the presidency of His Eminence, the Metropolitan of Kissamos and Selinon Amphilochios.
The basic mission of the OAC is the dialogical witness and the liturgical ministry of Orthodoxy in the modern world; therefore it is devoted to the cultivation of the spirit of dialogue between Orthodoxy and other confessions and religions, and also between faith, science and culture.
Inspired by the platonic tradition of symphilosophein (co-philosophising), the OAC aspires at being a place of dialogue and spiritual exchange in service of God and the human person.
