Saint Tikhon's Students and Teachers Take Part in Congress on Social Service
From October 17-19, 2018, in the Church Council Hall of the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow, the 7th All-Church Congress on Social Work took place, attended by representatives of 167 Russian and 24 foreign dioceses. According to tradition, teachers and students from the Department of Social and Youth Work of Saint Tikhon´s Orthodox University of the Humanities took part in the work of the conference.

The event included a meeting with Bishop Panteleimon, the President of the Synodal Department for Charitable Work and Social Service of the Russian Orthodox Church; this took the form of a question-and-answer session.

The attendees asked questions relating to organizational and spiritual work in the realm of social service.

Questions were asked by representatives from dioceses both within and outside Russia (Tallinn, Vilnius and Lithuania, Sourozh Dioceses). Their questions touched upon specific aspects of collaboration between church and state social services and differences in the organization of social work in Russia and abroad.

The main part of the Congress´s work was concentrated around thematic sessions that looked at the effectiveness of fundraising techniques, cooperation with state services, and project management.

Students from the department of social and youth work at Saint Tikhon´s University had the opportunity to meet participants at the Congress, to find out about dioceses´ social ministry, ask questions to the organizers of diocesan services, and discuss internship opportunities with them. Students accompanied the conference attendees to a meeting with representatives of dioceses grouped according to Russia´s administrative regions.
