Episcopal Divinity School to Relocate Office in July

Episcopal Divinity School (EDS) is pleased to announce the relocation of its office to the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City following the joint decision earlier this spring to discontinue the affiliation between EDS and Union Theological Seminary at the end of the current academic year. The one-year lease, scheduled to begin July 2023, represents the beginning of the next chapter in EDS’ journey. First steps include the launch of a 12-month strategic planning process and rescheduling the postponed Kellogg Lecture.

"Episcopal Divinity School has long been at the forefront in innovative and outward-focused theological education, bridging the divide between faith and inclusivity," stated Kay Kramer, Chair of EDS' Board of Trustees. "As we envision EDS' future, we ask your prayers and invite input from our community, alumni/ae, friends, supporters, and the wider Episcopal Church. We are listening and discerning our calling in this critical moment of change, challenge, and opportunity for the Church."

The strategic planning process will include listening sessions with partners and alumni/ae across The Episcopal Church. Together the process will cast a vision for prophetic, contemporary Christian witness and the role EDS can play in forming leaders grounded in the gospel imperative for justice. More information, including dates and locations of listening sessions, will be announced this summer.

Alumni/ae attending the “It’s All About Love“ festival in Baltimore, July 9-12 are invited to join Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas and alumnae Canon Lydia Bucklin and Canon Stephanie Spellers for lunch and conversation on July 11th. Contact Canon Lydia Bucklin for details.

Relocation of EDS’ office to the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine also creates new opportunities for collaborative programming over the course of the coming year. The new physical address for Episcopal Divinity School, beginning July 1, 2023, will be:

Episcopal Divinity School
1047 Amsterdam Avenue
New York, NY 10025
