Welcome
deanGreetings from the Holy City, Jerusalem, al-Quds. St George’s College is a marvelous gift to the global church from the Anglican Church in Jerusalem. First established in 1920 to serve as a seminary for the Middle East dioceses of the Anglican Communion, the College now serves as an international center for continuing education, interfaith encounter, pilgrimage, and research. We welcome people of all faiths to come and share our programs, and we open our hearts to make you welcome whether you stay for a few days or several weeks. You will be blessed by your time with our community of grace here in the Holy City, and we shall be blessed by all that you share with us. We look forward to welcoming you when you next visit Jerusalem. - Gregory C. Jenks, Dean, St George’s College Jerusalem
