It is the second day of Christmas and a little over a week away from our trip to Haiti. I heard from Pere Val today and they are very excited about our trip. He asked me specifically to bring some liturgical calendars for 2013. I am happy to oblige! I hope I will be able to Skype with him before our trip to iron out all the details.
I am more than thrilled to announce that my classmate Kellaura Johnson and myself received two grants to travel to Haiti for three weeks in January. We received grants from both the Episcopal Evangelical Society and The Seminary Consultation on Mission. We leave for Haiti on January 4th and will return on January 23rd.

Led by the vision of the late Bishop John E. Hines, the Episcopal Diocese of Texas formally established Seminary of the Southwest 60 years ago in Austin. Southwest primarily has prepared men and women for parish and diocesan ministry; however, laity have found degrees and programs at Southwest to further their calls to minister in the world.
