Bishop's School for Fall, 2008

Canon Jane Teter writes:

The Fall Semester of Bishop's School will be held at St. Peter's Church in Hazleton from 10 to 3:30 on September 20 & 27; October 4, 18 & 25; November 1, 8, 15, 22; and December 6 (December 13 is reserved for a snow day).

The morning class will be "The Message of the Old Testament" led by The Rev. Daniel Gunn; the afternoon class will be "Church History" led by Mr. Brian Pavlac.

Because the focus of Bishop's School is to prepare vocational deacons and locally licensed priests, the curriculum is designed to meet the canonical requirements for those ministries. The classes rotate on a four year cycle so that someone may enter at the beginning of any semester and continue through the four year program.

People who are in the ordination process may only miss one session and still receive credit for the course.

Although the focus is on preparation for ordination, anyone is welcome to register and attend all or any of the courses. A $75 fee per course is payable with registration.
To register please email Canon Teter at or send a note to her at the address below. Please include your name, address, phone number and email address. We need to be able to reach you in case of inclement weather or other schedule changes. Checks should be written to: The Diocese of Bethlehem, marked for Bishop's School. If you have questions, please contact me.

Canon for Ministries and Diocesan Deployment Officer
