Theology Class: “Building an Anglican Pilgrim Centre in Santiago de Compostela”

Dear Friends in Christ,

Canon Nancy Hoxsie Mead

This Sunday, December 8th, at 10:00 am, we welcome Canon Nancy Hoxsie Mead as our guest speaker.  Canon Mead is the Vice President of the Friends of the Anglican Pilgrim Centre in Santiago, a lay canon in the Spanish Episcopal Church, and the wife of Fr. Andrew Mead, the XII Rector of Saint Thomas Church.

Canon Mead will be speaking about an important project to build an Anglican Pilgrim Centre in Santiago de Compostela in Spain.  Each year, more than a quarter of a million people walk a part of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, which was the third holiest site in Christendom during the Middle Ages, after Jerusalem and Rome.

To this day, however, there is still no place for Anglican and other Protestant pilgrims to gather and celebrate the Holy Eucharist in community.  Canon Mead’s work with the Friends of the Anglican Centre in Santiago is dedicated to fulfilling the dream of building an Anglican Pilgrim Centre that will offer eucharistic hospitality to people of all Christian denominations.

The class will meet on the fifth floor of the parish house, and coffee and tea will be provided.  Please mark your calendars and come learn about this important project.

Blessings,

Fr. Cheng
Theologian in Residence
