@BrittanySSW has visited several college campuses here in Texas this semester! Another college-focused event on her road map is @TexasDiocese's College Retreat at @CampAllen, February 2014: http://www.epicenter.org/collegeretreat/
MyMinistry.org looks forward to meeting new undergrads and reconnecting with those we've met this fall! Find our table that weekend and apply for a Parish Fellowship. A year to discern, serve and map out your future. We are all called, how will you answer?
Spring 2014 has officially begun on higher education campuses across the nation, and also at All Saints' Fellowship Program in Fort Worth, Texas. Parish Fellow, Nathan Richardson, has completed his first semester at All Saints' and Rector, Fr. Chris Jambor, has shared his reflections on the program's pilot year. It has been a thrill to hear how well received and utilized the program has been in Fort Worth. The vision of MyMinistry.org and the Parish Fellowship Program has taken its first steps toward making space for young leaders in the church.
"At Episcopal Relief & Development, we look back on 2013 with mixed emotions. We are glad that the terrible natural disasters that punctuated the year, from the tornadoes in the Midwest and flooding in Colorado to the typhoon in the Philippines, are behind us. As we look to 2014, we are focused on long-term recovery in these and many other places where disaster struck. We are praying that 2014 will bring a more peaceful year in terms of humanitarian needs as a result of natural or human-made disasters."

A thoughtful message from Seminary of the Southwest Dean and President, The Very Rev. Dr. Cynthia Briggs Kittredge.
"During this blessed season of anticipation and expectation, I invite you to explore the 2013 Southwest Advent Meditations & Prayers. Seminary of the Southwest community members have written and recorded these offerings for each day of Advent. We share them with you and hope that they may guide your personal reflections during this Advent season. Please visit www.ssw.edu/Advent2013 for the first week's meditations and prayers." - The Very Rev. Dr. Cynthia Briggs Kittredge, Dean and President
