A Faculty Farewell
It is with the deepest gratitude for her service that we announce the departure of Kathy Lilla Cox from her role of Associate Professor of Moral Theology at Saint John's School of Theology and Seminary.
"You couldn't imagine Saint John's without a football team. I can't imagine the Abbey without a graduate program," says Dan Fazendin, chair of the SOT/Sem Board of Regents. Throughout the past 18 years, Dan and Lynn Fazendin have supported the graduate school and seminary in countless ways.
"While walking through the Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad, Gujarat India, my eyes were drawn to an enlarged and untidy handwritten scrawl on a marble slab. 'My life is my message'..." Maria Siebels, M.Div. '19, discusses her inspiration for studying Theology at the SOT/Sem.
