From the Rector
The Rev. Dr. Jared C. Cramer, SCP
Next month our congregation will be holding a special small conference—and you are invited.
We will be hosting the Second Great Lakes Conference on Anglican Catholicity. The conference is being presented by the Great Lakes Chapter of the Society of Catholic Priests in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada. I was part of the inception and founding of this society over a decade ago and I currently serve as the Convener for the Great Lakes Chapter, whose members include Episcopal and Anglican priests from both the midwest area and Canada.
The theme of the Conference is “Anglo-Catholicism and the Common Good.” Our keynote speaker is Dr. Elisabeth Kincaid, a scholar who holds a Ph.D. in Moral Theology from the University of Notre Dame and who previously practiced law and worked in private equity. She will be exploring the intersection of the Anglo-Catholic movement and social justice concerns in society.
There will also be a variety of workshops for you to attend. The worship will be the high standards we have at St. John’s, but ratcheted up a bit to lean more into the Anglo-Catholic tradition and give Conference attendees a taste of a style of worship hard to come by here in the Midwest. Meals will also be provided.
You can find out more and register to attend online here. Note that if you would just like to come to dinner and the keynote, there is a reduced registration fee for that. And, of course, all worship events are open to everyone, free of charge.
If any aspect of the conference cost would be prohibitive for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I do have scholarships available to those who would like to attend.
PS ~ It’s not too late to join us for Misa en el Campo tonight. You can come to the church at 5:30pm to help Yolanda with the cooking, come at 6:00pm to help Alicia with preparing the items we will donate, or meet us here to carpool when we leave at 6:45pm to head to the camp where we will be serving a meal and celebrating Holy Eucharist.
