Theological Education Sunday
Theological Education Sunday (TES) is offically recognized on the first Sunday in February. It is a day parishioners set aside to pray and give for all laity and clergy whose ministry is Christian education, wherever that ministry happens — in the home, preschool programs, parishes, colleges, universities, and seminaries. Established in 1999 by the Episcopal church, this Sunday on the church calendar is an occasion for all parishioners to focus on education as a key aspect of mission. The School of Theology at Sewanee welcomes this opportunity to be a part of your Theological Education Sunday program. If you would like to learn more about how you could have a seminarian come to your church, email Sukey Byerly or call at 931.598.1217.
As a leader in Episcopal education, The School of Theology prepares men and women for ministry in witness and service to the Triune God rooted in scripture, theology, prayer, and reflective practice. Its academic, worship and community life is characterized by intentional commitment to the mission of the church, especially through Christian education and formation for all God’s people and to the church’s call to social justice.
