Pact for VTS, St. George’s

From The Living Church-

In a newly signed agreement, Virginia Theological Seminary and St. George’s College in Jerusalem agree to hold each other up in prayer, work together to promote a positive vision of the Anglican Communion worldwide, and actively seek to collaborate on mutual learning experiences, such as cross-cultural education programs.

The partnerships states: “Acknowledging the rich experience of partnership we have enjoyed and cognizant of the mutual benefits in our respective communities of such partnership, we commit to seeing our partnership grow and mature and acknowledge that this agreement represents a new era in co-operation for the sake of the wider church.”

“Virginia Theological Seminary has deep relationships in the Anglican Communion,” said the Rev. Melody Knowles, acting dean and president. “Our relationship and friendship with St. George’s presents opportunities for our community to experience and engage with a unique expression of Anglicanism in a unique setting. I am very pleased we have renewed this partnership.”
