From the Rev. Nathan Jennings, PhD, Associate Professor of Liturgics and Anglican Studies
Two days after we return from the Thanksgiving holiday, Seminary of the Southwest will welcome Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori to our campus for the 60th Anniversary lecture and festivities.
Led by the vision of the late Bishop John E. Hines, the Episcopal Diocese of Texas formally established Seminary of the Southwest 60 years ago in Austin. Southwest primarily has prepared men and women for parish and diocesan ministry; however, laity have found degrees and programs at Southwest to further their calls to minister in the world.
