Holy Synod meet­ing to dis­cuss re­li­gion at school

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Holy Synod of the Church of Greece will con­vene on March 8 and 9 to dis­cuss its course of ac­tion over the new way, in­tro­duced by the gov­ern­ment, that re­li­gion is taught at school. The is­sue had been a source of fric­tion be­tween for­mer ed­u­ca­tion min­is­ter Nikos Filis and the Church of Greece. Filis said he wanted to rid schools of re­li­gious cat­e­chism and re­place it with a course on world re­li­gions. The Church has al­ready formed a three-mem­ber com­mit­tee of cler­ics to eval­u­ate the new sys­tem at the end of the school year.
