Certificate in Ecumenism and Annual Ecumenism Award
Next Thursday, Feb. 2 the Consortium will honor two students who have received the Certificate in Ecumenism–after 12 or more hours of course work in Ecumenical studies, theology, and history. These students, Amy Feira of Gettysburg Seminary and Desiree Kameka of Wesley have developed skills in interpretation, dialogue, and active organization that will enable them to engage multiple Christian churches around our unity in Christ and various interfaith communities around deeper dialogue and understanding. This takes place at the Prayer Service for Christian Unity, 5:30 p.m., Feb 2. at the Washington Theological Union (5 minute walk from Takoma Park Metro). We encourage all Consortium students to attend!
In addition, the Consortium will honor Dr. Margaret O’Gara, of the University of St. Michael’s College in Toronto, with its annual Ecumenism Award after the service. She is a noted theologian and ecumenist, and will offer an address on the “Dialogue of Transformation” which highlights ecumenical encounters that have changed people and communities. She has been involved in numerous Ecumenical dialogues and bi-lateral conversations between the Catholic Church and various Christian communities. We encourage Consortium faculty and friends to attend this auspicious evening!
