Christian Association Transition
On Saturday, May 20, alumni and friends of The Christian Association
will gather one last time in the building that has been the locus of Protestant
campus ministry at Penn since 1928. "This event marks a historic transition
in the organization's long history of involvement in the social issues on
campus and in the community at large," said Rev. Beverly Dale, the
CA's Executive Director.
The Christian Association closed on the sale of their building at 3601
Locust Walk on November 1, 1999, transferring ownership to the University
of Pennsylvania. In celebration of this sale, the Board of Directors and
Staff of the CA are planning a brunch reception from 9-11 a.m. and Program
at 11 a.m. in Memorial Hall. The program will feature a distinguished panel
of alumni and friends. They include: the Rev. Christine Berwanger '94, Dr.
Robert Miller '94, Erin Cross, Penn staff member, Rev. Bill Knox, former
CA director and Charles Howard '00. Panelists will discuss current issues
facing the church, suggesting how we can prepare students to lead the church
of tomorrow. The program will conclude with a Ceremony of Secularization
of a Consecrated building.
All friends of the Christian Association in the Philadelphia area are
invited to attend. For additional information or directions, please contact
Rev. Kaaren Nesmith at (215) 386-1530 or contact her via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
