Background Information

What is the Archdiocesan Advisory Committee on Science & Technology (AACST)?

To address these needs among both clergy and laity, Archbishop Demetrios established the Archdiocesan Advisory Committee on Science and Technology (AACST) in 2001. The AACST is pan-Orthodox, comprised of theologians and experts in numerous areas of study, including: biology, physics, medicine and law. The Committee helps inform the members of our Holy Eparchial Synod and works toward the preparation of resource material that will assist the pastoral and educational ministry of the Church on an Archdiocesan, Metropolis, and parish level.

Why take this survey?

The AACST has developed a simple survey to learn about the particular interests and concerns of our people. Aligning basic demographic information with these concerns and interests, the AACST will have a better understanding of the most relevant and pressing issues for Orthodox Christians. In turn, the AACST will work diligently to articulate an Orthodox Christian perspective on these issues and begin to offer resources to parishes across the Archdiocese. The survey will take you less than 3 minutes to complete and your identity is completely protected.
