Dear Friends,

My second three-year term as rector of the Tantur Ecumenical Institute concludes next week, on the last day of this month.  This second term is my last, as I will be returning to the U.S. to join the faculty at King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, a college founded by my community—the Congregation of Holy Cross—after the Second World War to educate young men and women coming from coal-mining households.  There I will be teaching in the theology department, assisting in campus ministry to help the college community expand its efforts in interfaith engagement, and serving as superior (=director) of the local Holy Cross community on campus.
