The Church and Community Engagement Office at VTS has as one of its five main prerogatives the call to advance community care and justice partnerships. This is lived out in the relationships developed between VTS and key metropolitan organizations and agencies engaged in community relief, development, advocacy, and action. In short, the CCE Office leads the seminary in strengthening our bonds with the community around us, and this work would not be possible without our many partners in the metropolitan area.
In celebration of this work and these partnerships, a special Eucharist will be held tonight at 5:15 p.m. in Immanuel Chapel. This will be a service of thanksgiving and recognition for leaders and representatives from different arenas of public service with whom VTS has developed relationships. During the Eucharist we will ask leaders and representatives to come forward to offer thanks for them and to pray for them.
Do please join us this evening as we recognize the important work of this office and the important contributions of the many agencies and organizations that we support and work alongside.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D. Dean and President
