CETALC fosters theological education in Latin America, Caribbean

Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Luisa Salguero grew up in the Episcopal Church in El Salvador. Her late father, Vicente Alfredo Salguero, worked for the church and a plaque bearing his name hangs outside the chapel at the church’s office in San Salvador.As a teenager, Salguero spent some time away from the church, she said during an August interview in San Jose, Costa Rica, and upon high school graduation she studied law at the University of Central America and later went to work for a multinational computer technology company for six years.Salguero, 32, said her work as a lawyer left her feeling empty, and she began spending more time at church.“I felt like I had a hole I was filling in,” she said. “I spent all my free time at the church and enjoyed it and discovered that that was what I really wanted to do. I loved what I was doing.”Today, Salguero is one of two Salvadoran women studying full time at the Universidad Bíblica Latinoamericana, a regional ecumenical seminary program in San Jose, Costa Rica.El Salvador Bishop Martín Barahona and the church’s ministry board approved Salguero and Michel Monterroza, 28, for the university’s residential program.“They wanted us to get all the skills; it’s going to be tough to be a woman [priest] in El Salvador,” she said.Salguero’s and Monterroza’s studies are made possible with help from grants for the Commission for Theological Education for Latin America and the Caribbean (CETALC).Recently, CETALC awarded 26 grants in six categories plus $299,443 in administrative funding to support the educational, theological and formational needs of the church in Latin America and the Caribbean.The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council approved funds during its Oct. 15-17 meeting in Chicago, Illinois, according to a press release.Executive Council established the Trust Fund for Theological Education for Latin America and the Caribbean in 1976 following the closure of the Episcopal Seminary of the Caribbean; with the funds from the sale of the property set aside to provide support for the theological education programs of the dioceses that used the seminary. The seminary was located in Puerto Rico.The six categories of CETALC grants are: diocesan programs; provincial and regional programs; continued theological education; research and production in the theological field; graduate studies scholarships; and the Bishop Leonardo Romero scholarship. (Named for the late bishop of Northern Mexico, the scholarship allows recipients to study at St. George’s College in Jerusalem).For a list of the grants awarded by diocese, province and type, click here.In addition to individual diocesan grants, Province 9 – which includes the dioceses of Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Colombia, Central Ecuador and Ecuador Litoral – received $285,000, including funds to assist in establishing a regional seminary in the Dominican Republic.Province 9 has lacked a “solid regional center” for theological education since the closure of the seminary in Puerto Rico, said Bishop Wilfrido Ramos-Orench, who serves as the Episcopal Church’s global partnerships officer for Province 9.“Priestly formation processes have taken place at the local level with a very few exceptions,” said Ramos-Orench in an e-mail to ENS, adding that there is an “urgent” need to create a provincial seminary.To meet the theological education and formation needs of seminarians in Province 9, the Provincial Council recently endorsed a grant proposal to establish a regional seminary in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The proposal was presented to CETALC and approved during its August meeting in Panama City, Panama.The Diocese of the Dominican Republic has an existing seminary, including staff and a library, located next to the Cathedral Church of the Epiphany in Santo Domingo, which it established some years ago with the Evangelical Church of the Dominican Republic, as a center for the formation of clergy and laity, said Ramos-Orench.Since its inception, he added, the seminary has served other dioceses and churches, including Ecuador, Venezuela, Colombia, El Salvador, Cuba, and most recently a student from the Diocese of Washington.Students may also receive theological education locally, through the Anglican Center for Higher Theological Studies, or CAETS.CAETS exists to serve students, clergy and laity, who either cannot afford to study at a residential seminary, or have family and work obligations that require them to stay home, said the Rev. Glenda McQueen, the Episcopal Church’s global partnerships officer for Latin America and the Caribbean.CATES also offers a two-week residential program, where students spend time at regional centers for theological education or seminaries.— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.  Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Latin America, Rector Pittsburgh, PA Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Armstrong Place Senior Housing / David Baker + Partners

first_imgCopyApartments•San Francisco, United States Armstrong Place Senior Housing / David Baker + Partners Photographs Photographs:  Brian RoseText description provided by the architects. This complex development fills a formerly industrial city block with an innovative housing mix: Affordable urban townhomes to keep growing families in the city and family housing adjacent to senior apartments to prevent seniors from living in isolation. Save this picture!© Brian RoseLeading a trend of transit-oriented development along the district’s main business corridor, the development lies just a block from a stop of a new light-rail line, a park, and a health center. The senior building, with 116 affordable rental units, serves as the anchor for the development, housing neighborhood-serving retail space and services and presenting an iconic tower at the corner that signals a sense of place. Save this picture!© Brian RoseTo reflect the historically African-American population of the neighborhood, design details were drawn from traditional African textiles and symbols. Textile-inspired paint and window arrangements combine to wrap the public face of the building in an interlocking “quilt” of color and pattern. The courtyard is ringed by a wall inset with Ashanti tribal symbols representing security, wisdom, power, love, unity, and hope. Save this picture!© Brian RoseBased on income, the rents range from $0 to $635/month, with qualifying income levels below 50% AMI and some units reserved for formerly homeless seniors. The building is LEED NC Registered, with a goal of Gold. It features many complementary green strategies, including storm-water management, solar arrays that heat domestic water and light the common spaces, and healthy interiors and materials. Save this picture!© Brian RoseThe senior apartments overlook the park, the courtyard, or a landscaped mews that runs between the building and the family townhouse development. The mews, an extension of the city street grid, provides direct access to the surrounding neighborhood and serves as a walking path away from the main arterial roadway. Save this picture!© Brian RoseIn the family development, two mirrored sections of stacked townhouses flank a large open public courtyard above one level of parking, lobby, and community spaces. While staying connected to the city streets through private stoops and balconies, the townhouses surround the central courtyard, which features vegetable gardens, outdoor seating, and a picnic and play structure. Each side also features a smaller private courtyard with planters and picnic tables. Save this picture!© Brian RoseOf the 124 family townhomes, half feature three and four bedrooms, allowing people to stay as families grow. Many larger units are designed for aging in place, with stairs wide enough to accommodate wheelchair lifts and accessible living quarters on the entry level. These for-sale townhomes range from $175,000 to $345,000 and are available to families earning between 60 and 100% AMI.Save this picture!© Brian RoseProject gallerySee allShow lessGateway Galaxy / Balmond StudioArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticlesProject locationAddress:San Francisco, CA, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

AFGE national vice-president, Augusta Thomas, on acquittal of George Zimmerman

first_imgAgusta ThomasAugusta Thomas, national vice president for women and fair practices for the American Federation of Government Employees based in Washington, D.C., issued the following statement on the acquittal of George Zimmerman on July 19:I could not remain silent in the face of the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the murder of Trayvon Martin. I also could not simply say that I respect the decision of the jury and move on. I also could not say that this was something that trade unionists should ignore.Using the pretext of the bizarre law known as “Stand Your Ground,” a jury acquitted George Zimmerman of all charges in connection with the killing of Trayvon Martin. It is important for all of us to understand how outrageous both the law and the decision are. Trayvon Martin was an unarmed 17-year-old who was in his own neighborhood. He was approached by an adult who was armed; an adult, I need to emphasize, whom the police told not to interfere. What happened next is a matter of dispute but what is clear is that Martin was unarmed. He may have objected to George Zimmerman infringing on his right to free movement, but in any case, he ended up dead.Zimmerman claimed that he was attacked and that his killing of Trayvon Martin represented self-defense. But from any reasonable standpoint this would appear to have been stalking by an adult that led to a death. Where is there self-defense when an armed adult, with no official authority, approaches an unarmed teenager?Please think about this for a moment. Please think about how you would feel were you a teenager again and an armed adult approached you and told you that you could not walk through your own neighborhood. Who would the aggressor be?With all due respect to President Obama, this is not about possessing weapons. This is about the value of life. It is specifically about whether the life of a Black youth has any value.We live in a society where the profiling of people based on race and ethnicity has become commonplace. There is an assumption that young people of color dressed in certain ways are automatically suspect. These assumptions play upon fears and the fears lead to tragedies as we saw in the case of the killing of Trayvon Martin.I agree with President Obama that this is a time for reflection. But I would suggest that this is not a time for everyone to express how they love one another but to reflect on how an unarmed youth could be blamed for his own death. This is a time to reflect on why an armed adult can claim self-defense when he stalked such a youth. This is a time to reflect on how the depth of racial and ethnic prejudices drives a chasm between people who otherwise share so many of the same complaints, issues and concerns. This is a time to reflect upon who benefits from this chasm.The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) is the largest federal employee union, representing 670,000 workers in the federal government and the government of the District of Columbia.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
