Date: February 22, 2022
Our Center for Anglican Communion Studies is in high gear this semester and we are fortunate to have another CACS event tomorrow night, February 23, at 7 p.m. in the Lettie Pate Evans Room. “Immigration and Border Ministries” is the topic and the Rev. Canon David Ulloa Chavez, Canon for Border Ministries in the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona, is the speaker, joining us in person. Learn more and sign up here.
Canon Ulloa Chavez grew up in a bilingual faith community straddling the border between San Diego, California, and Tijuana, Mexico. He earned degrees from Princeton Theological Seminary and then served as a Presbyterian minister before moving to The Episcopal Church. VTS Board member and Dean Troy Mendez welcomed him and his two sons to Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Phoenix and he was ordained to the priesthood in 2018.
Canon Ulloa Chavez speaks from deep experience and with passion about how our faith must guide our response to those coming to the US seeking a new home. Immigration is one of the most important issues across the globe and across almost every part of the Anglican Communion. Please don’t miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding.
Special thanks to Luis Hernandéz Rivas (’23) for introducing CACS and us all to Canon Ulloa Chavez.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
