The Annual Friends Reception for the Consortium
took place in the Pilgrim Gallery at Washington
National Cathedral last Thursday night.
You may recall that this is the 100th Anniversary of the
Cathedral–The Consortium Development Committee
wanted to acknowledge this anniversary.
The night was clear and beautiful. The Gallery is on the 7th
floor–so we had a delightful view of the Washington horizon.
The friends engaged in animated conversation, shared a buffet meal
and listened to a quite stimulating talk on ecumenical dimensions
of Hispanic Ministry by Fr. John Ford of Catholic University.
As usual, the event was well supported by public trustees of the Consortium.
Honorary sponsors include major church leaders from the region.
It is always good to see these friends.
The Consortium serves the member instititons and the wider public.
These friends support the public outreach with their time
and their contributions.
