This summer, I have the privilege of taking a journalism course in Athens, Greece. Weekly updates will explore new facets of Athens as my classmates and I search for stories from one of the world’s most fascinating and historic locales!

In my latest post, we cover the Feast of St. Paul held on June 29 at the Areopagus, the boulder outcrop in which St. Paul delivered his famous sermon regarding the “unknown god” to an Athenian office, an event that eventually led to the creation of the Greek church, according to scripture. The post includes photos and videos from the event. Check it out here!
