It is a great joy to welcome the Rev. Richard Sewell, Dean of St. George’s College, Jerusalem to campus today. Hosted by our Center for Anglican Communion Studies (CACS), Dean Sewell will share his vision for the college in a lunchtime conversation tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. in the Gibbs Room.
In January, twelve students from VTS, as well as the Rev. Dr. Katherine Grieb, participated in a course at St. George’s as part of a long-standing partnership between the two institutions. For many, the opportunity to visit the Holy Land is a transformational part of their seminary education. I am grateful to the faculty and staff of St. George’s for facilitating these experiences for our students and alums.
This is Dean Sewell 's first visit to Virginia Theological Seminary. Please do welcome him and join the conversation, facilitated by Dr. Grieb, tomorrow afternoon. This is another important opportunity in CACS' year-long focus on the Communion in the Middle East. Those interested in attending should contact Molly O’Brien, CACS Administrative Coordinator.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D. Dean and President
