Sending Ceremony

The “Sending Ceremony” is a kind of “anti-graduation.” The two years of study are complete, but the student is not proficient in the material. The deeper Mysteries remain mysterious, the working of the Spirit not clear in its ways or effects, the student remains a beginner. What is celebrated is that the door is open, the student now part of a community of pilgrims on the Journey together. We send them out to continue the Journey in ways which will meet needs and suffering at every turn, and respond with love, prayer, and compassion. The students receive a deacon’s stole, universal Christian symbol of the servant. Hallelujah indeed!
