Bishop to check out unique theology school

From Topeka-

When Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori visits Topeka this weekend, it will be for more than a mere courtesy call at a Midwest diocese.

Schori is keenly interested in the work of the Bishop Kemper School for Ministry, an institution based in Topeka that is designed to provide theological education in a local setting for people wishing to serve in the Episcopal Dioceses of Kansas, West Missouri, Nebraska and Western Kansas.

“That’s the main reason for my visit,” said Schori, 59. “I will be meeting with people who have supported the Kemper School for Ministry, and I’ll be visiting with donors.”

Schori also will meet with area bishops on Saturday.

The Kemper School opened this past summer and is supported financially by the four dioceses.
