Halikias, Philip J.
MetadataShow full item record
This project, utilizing small groups that draw on group theory (Marianne Schneider Corey & Gerald Corey) and attachment theory (John Bowlby), will begin to close the gap between the Orthodox model of the Home Church and the experience of many Orthodox-Catholic marriages, often living out a kind of familial-religious schism. In response to the challenges of intercultural/interdenominational marriage, resources are presented for couples and families to thrive. A focused curriculum has been developed in conjunction with a support group. It is anticipated that this project will be a launching point for future replicated ministries that attend to Greek Orthodox-Catholic couples.
