Nashotah House Theological Seminary will present its Archbishop Ramsey Award to Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry on Sept. 28. Named for the 100th Archbishop of Canterbury, the award is presented to individuals who distinguish themselves in ecclesiology, ecumenism, and liturgy.

Bishop Curry’s vocation has included ecumenical summer day camps for children, preaching missions, the Absalom Jones Initiative, education centers, and brokering millions of dollars of investment in inner-city neighborhoods.

“We are privileged to recognize Bishop Curry for his dedication and contributions to the Episcopal Church,” said the Rt. Rev. Daniel H. Martins, chairman of Nashotah House’s board. “His personal flair and unique ability to connect and minister to others throughout the world is admirable. We are especially grateful for his efforts to raise the visibility of the name of Jesus in church discourse.”

“I am honored to be receiving the Archbishop Michael Ramsey Award and I look forward to visiting and preaching at Nashotah House,” Bishop Curry said. “I was influenced by Archbishop Ramsey and his work, and by priests from Nashotah House, so this visit and award are truly special to me.”

After the award presentation, Bishop Curry will deliver the convocation address during a matriculation service and Evensong in Adams Hall.
