Retired Episcopal Bishop Henry Parsley will lead retreats in Sewanee

From Alabama-

Retired Episcopal Bishop Henry N. Parsley, who stepped down as head of the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama at the end of 2011, will serve as the first bishop-in-residence at St. Mary's Sewanee retreat center.

Parsley will serve a three-year term, with his first week in residence March 1-8. He will offer a Lenten Quiet Day on March 1.

Parsley will be in residence one week every quarter, leading quiet retreat days and scheduling appointments for spiritual direction. He will lead pre-ordination retreats for transitional deacons and develop opportunities to nurture parish priests.

Parsley currently serves as chancellor of the University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn.

The St. Mary's Sewanee retreat center, celebrating its 25th year, hosts more than 5,000 guests each year, about three miles from the University of the South.
