Not terribly surprising, in reality. Dying Church, dying seminaries. That and Nashotah House has the youngest seminary population. I guess we are running out of aging hippie ladies to make priests and the money to send them to seminary. It is a kind of a shame that the closure is happening on their 150th anniversary. What is also strange is that this is Sewanee’s 150th anniversary too. 1858 must have been a really good year for the Episcopal Church. I wonder what a good year in the Episcopal Church would look like.
