What is CACS up to This Summer?

Date: July 11, 2023

For day 2 of the CACS Dean’s Commentary, we are delighted to give you a window into our summer activities.

Katherine Grieb, Director of CACS, spent a week in June in North Wales giving the Hellins Lecture at the St. Asaph Cathedral, leading a pre-ordination retreat for 7 deacons of the Diocese of St. Asaph, and preaching at their ordination. This link provides a wonderful summary of Dr. Grieb’s many contributions.

In July, Dr. Grieb preached on the first Sunday at the York Minster and is teaching now in the Cambridge Summer Institute: The Bible: Everywhere in Everyday Life. She then will be attending the David Jones conference and reading a paper entitled Wounds of Christ, Wounds of Arthur, Wounds of War in the Poem “The Sleeping Lord”.  Later in July she will be teaching at the Summer School in Anglican Theology at the University of Utrecht for the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe and attending the Theological Educators conference of the Episcopal Church of Brazil in Porto Alegre.

Work on campus for CACS this summer has involved hospitality for and connections with our international DMin students. Thank you to Jenn Baker for arranging these times for us!  We’ve also been finishing up work with our second cohort of young scholar-leaders in Mexico, where Luis Hernández-Rivas will be headed mid-month for the final cohort celebration and evaluation. Otherwise, we are hard at work on our program for 2023-24 when we will be hosting a Scriptural Reasoning (SR) training of facilitators and monthly SR sessions, four sabbatical visitors, two special events during the VTS bicentenary, one international theology conference, two new youth leadership cohorts under our Trinity Church Wall Street grant, and an exciting program for our spring CACS Companions dinner.  We’ve even been fielding applications for Communion sabbaticals and other visits in 2024-25!

It’s life-giving and Kingdom-building work that we are fortunate to do with the support of brilliant colleagues at VTS and around the Anglican Communion. Thank you!
