Ann Arbor's First Orthodox Priest:
A Story of Refugeehood, Migration, and the Ecumenical Riches of Greek-Orthodoxy in America
Who was the first Orthodox Priest of Ann Arbor, and what can we learn from his life story today? This talk will follow the twists and turns in the life of Fr. Agathangelos, the first Greek-Orthodox priest to serve the spiritual needs of Ann Arbor nearly a century ago, and reflect on its broader meanings for Greek Orthodoxy in America. William Stroebel is an Asst. Professor in the Modern Greek Program and Comparative Literature at the University of Michigan. His research focuses on recovering the refugee literatures displaced by the Greco-Turkish Population Exchange of 1923. The lecture will be held Monday, February 20 at 7:00 pm, here at St. Nicholas, and be accompanied with refreshments and a reception after the Q&A.
