The 2017
Society of Scholar-Priests Conference
Christ Church Cathedral Hartford, CT
June 7-9, 2017


In the ordination examination, we hear of the three-fold vocation of ordination: pastor, priest, and teacher. At this year’s conference, our focus is on how teaching fits into the life and ministry of the scholar-priest. Through presentations and discussion with seasoned scholar-priests, we we will explore how SSP can help foster and support the role of teaching for the good of the church.Confirmed speakers include the Rt. Rev. Dr. Ian Douglas, bishop of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, the Very Rev. Dr. Andrew McGowan, Dean and President of Berkeley Divinity School at Yale, the Rev. Dr. Molly F. James, Dean of Formation for the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, and the Rev. Canon Dr. C. K. Robertson, Canon to the Presiding Bishop.
