Metropolitan Kallistos reposed in the Lord

Metropolitan Kallistos reposed in the Lord

The Board of Directors of the Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies in Cambridge is sad to announce the passing to the Lord, on 24 August 2022, of our President, Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware) of Diokleia, one of the founding Fathers of our Institute. His Eminence took active part in the running of IOCS, he frequently lectured for it and in many ways helped create the theological and educational direction of the Institute throughout its two decades of existence.

Eternal be his memory!
