The Friends’ Inaugural Meeting

Dear Circle of Friends,

Thank you for your support and contributions in all forms to the seminary in North America!

Please see the message, below, from a member of the circle of Friends for more about our inaugural meeting!

Greetings to Everyone,
Last night, I was privileged to view a new digital meeting format from the Christian Community Seminary from Toronto, with Revs Patrick Kennedy and Jonah Evans. We took a tour of the facility there that will be shared by the Congregation and the North American Seminary. I also received words of inspiration for daily living, and heard about plans for the future. I was included in this first attempt, because I had requested to be a Friend of the Seminary and signed up to attend. There will be monthly meetings of this group starting in July. I would encourage you to check out this opportunity on the website: Once you are on the homepage, click on Friends of the Seminary. Read about the group and see if you would like to join. There is a donate button, for your convenience, as well.

We hope that more people will be drawn to become Priestly and also go forward to become ordained, through the courses of the Seminary. Here in the southeast, we are looking forward towards establishing a Congregation, this can’t happen without a Priest. Pray for The Christian Community, our Seminary, and it’s Directors, and our Priests.

With Love and Appreciation,
Katherine Jenkins

We invite you to share with us how our monthly conversations may support you in walking your priestly path, as we began to discuss in our first Friends’ conversation, and your inspirations, hopes and ideas for future Friends of the Christian Community Seminary in North America conversations.  Please email us at
