Consortium Schools Beginning Fall Semester
I have returned from my time away.
I was happy to have spent a week at the Chautauqua Institution in Western New York
as one of the Catholic House Chaplains. I was part of a group from the Association of Theological Schools who served at chaplains the last week of July. The theme of the week was Abrahamic Dialogue.
I learned a lot from the presidents and deans who served as chaplains in the various Christian houses on the Chautauqua campus. They were a friendly group and shared a lot of insights about preparing students for the world of inter religious dialogue. We also had quite a few laughs in our get-togethers.
I have returned–and am preparing for the first orientation of new students at VTS on Thursday. This year we are implementing Linwood Blizzard’s excellent suggestion [He is a student representative from HUSD] that I introduce the Consortium Student Board representatives from the School and ask them to say a few words.
Please keep all new students in your prayers.
