Video: Interview with Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry

first_img Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH July 2, 2015 at 11:11 am I have been in conversations where Episcopalians asked why the name of Jesus is not spoken more frequently and more passionately. Bishop Curry must have heard these conversations. What a blessing he is. What an authentic and passionate follower of Jesus. Featured Jobs & Calls [Episcopal News Service] In an 18-minute interview with the Episcopal News Service, Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry speaks about his priorities for leadership and administration, the role of the church in engaging God’s mission in the world, the state of race relations in the U.S., the importance of Anglican Communion partnerships, and his commitment to what he calls the Jesus Movement, to go out into the world “to bear witness to the good news of Jesus.” Video: Interview with Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Bishop Joel Marcus Johnson says: Posted Jun 30, 2015 Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT June 30, 2015 at 11:25 pm I too am a life long Episcopalian who for 50 of my 74 years have been an priest in CNY, graduating from Berkeley at Yale.

Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York June 30, 2015 at 11:23 pm For a while I am still going to feel a bit ajar after learning to appreciate the steady slow words of Bishop Jefferts Schori. What a phenomenal leader and pastor she has been. Personally attacked for her gender and authority as a woman, she has stood firm in the Spirit. I have every confidence in Bishop Elect Curry and am refreshed by his conviction, anecdotes and having been the son of an Episcopal priest–who still chose to be a priest!!

SMC announces tuition increase

first_imgThe Saint Mary’s Board of Trustees recently announced a 3.85 percent increase in tuition and fees and room and board for the upcoming school year, according to a press release issued by director of media relations Gwen O’Brien.Tuition and fees are set at $35,970 and room and board will be $10,930, meaning the total cost to attend the College is now $46,900 per year, the press release stated.Vice president for finance and administration Susan Bolt said these changes happen annually when the College plans its operating budget for the coming year. Like all businesses, Saint Mary’s faces rising costs for health care, transportation, food, publications, technology and even postage, she said.Bolt said the College nonetheless commits to providing students with a high quality, affordable education and an experience that nurtures academic, spiritual and emotional development.“We look for opportunities to reduce or hold flat most expenses but also carefully assess our students’ financial aid needs so that we remain true to our mission and serve those with limited financial resources,” she said.For many students, it is more economical to attend Saint Mary’s than to enroll even at a public university, O’Brien said. Nearly one third of the operating budget is devoted to financial aid, she said.Tuition and room and board represent 80 percent of the College’s operating revenue, while the remaining 20 percent is supported by donations from alumnae and by earnings on the College’s endowment, O’Brien said.Bolt said this upcoming year’s increases are consistent with national trends.“[The changes] are benchmarked against our peers and competitors’ total cost and annual percent change,” Bolt said. “Saint Mary’s tuition and fees and room and board annual percent change and total cost was less than average for our private competitors in each of the last three years.”Business student and junior Madison Maidment said she is not surprised by the increase and does not think it will affect any of the students or incoming students in a significant way.“Tuition increases every year, which is the reality of attending private universities that are constantly improving and expanding in new directions,” Maidment said. “The financial aid office here does an excellent job working to benefit as many students as possible, and I think these changes will hopefully bring about even more generosity of our College’s endowment fund on the part of present benefactors and fundraisers.”Tags: Tuitionlast_img read more

Governor Wolf Signs Bill to Protect Children’s Health Care, Urges Federal Action

first_imgGovernor Wolf Signs Bill to Protect Children’s Health Care, Urges Federal Action SHARE Email Facebook Twitter December 15, 2017center_img Healthcare,  National Issues,  Press Release,  Public Health Philadelphia, PA – With state legislators, cabinet officials, health care providers, families, and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) administration and clinicians joining him, Governor Tom Wolf today held a bill signing of legislation to protect children’s health care through state funding of the Children’s Health Insurance Program, commonly known as CHIP.“I am proud to sign this legislation that represents Pennsylvania’s bi-partisan commitment to securing health insurance for our most vulnerable – our children and pregnant women,” said Governor Wolf. “However, this is just one step in ensuring children are cared for. Congress needs to do its part and reauthorize CHIP at the federal level. Without federal funding, more than 180,000 children in Pennsylvania could be without health care in early 2018.”Federal funding accounts for 90 percent of the $450 million CHIP budget. Congress failed to reauthorize CHIP before the Sept. 30 deadline and has not yet addressed funding for the more than 9 million children nationally who benefit from it.“The Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) provides comprehensive coverage to over 6,000 patients at CHOP,” said Madeline Bell, President and CEO of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. “Without it, children and their families face uncertainty. The bill signed by Governor Wolf in our hospital today is one of two very important steps that make CHIP available to Pennsylvania’s children. Now, Congress needs to fund CHIP so that these children get the healthcare they deserve.”Acting Secretary for the Department of Human Services Teresa Miller conveyed the need for federal funding.“Since 2009, more than 850,000 kids have enrolled in CHIP in the commonwealth,” said Secretary Miller. “Despite all the families helped by CHIP and the access to high quality health care coverage it provides, the program will no longer exist unless Congress acts.”Gov. Wolf was among a group of bi-partisan governors who sent a letter to Congressional leaders earlier this week urging them to take action and reauthorize CHIP, “For twenty years, [CHIP] has successfully provided vital health coverage and care to about nine million children. Without it, access to essential health services like well child exams, asthma medicine, and hospitalizations will be at risk. As health insurance premiums climb at unsustainable rates, this program gives hard-working families access to otherwise unaffordable coverage.”Pennsylvania’s CHIP legislation was sponsored by Representative Rich Irvin.last_img read more
