The College Celebrates
Dear Alumni and Friends,
Our college has been filled with pilgrims and special guests in May.
The students pictured above enjoyed time with our college Patron, The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. It was a blessing to have his presence along with his wife, Caroline and the Archbishop’s staff.
In May, we celebrate that Archbishop Suheil Dawani is now President Bishop of the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East. We are proud of this honor and expect his leadership to bring peace to the region.
And finally, in May, we celebrate the announcement below of the new college interim Dean, the Rev. Dr. Richard LeSueur. Richard will arrive at the college October 1 and assume leadership along with his support staff, Course Director, the Rev. Dr. Hector Patmore and the Associate Dean the Rev. Dr. Susan Lukens. The official press release appears below.
We ask for your prayers and continue to keep you in ours,

Our June Women of the Bible course started today, and we welcome pilgrims from the United States who will follow the footsteps of women whose narratives are written in Holy Scripture as well as have conversation with the living stones here in the holy land.
