GTS Associate Dean Hosts Bishop from Ghana, Explores Partnership


Associate Dean Patrick Malloy welcomed the Rt. Rev. Daniel S. A. Allotey to General Seminary on Wednesday afternoon, May 30, along with a delegation, to explore a partnership between Bp. Allotey's diocese in Ghana, the Anglican Diocese of Cape Coast, and the seminary. "This is a great opportunity for General to enter into dialogue with other churches in the Anglican Communion," said Dean Malloy. "We have already made significant progress this year, having joined the Compass Rose Society and launched the F.A.R. and Wide Scholarship Program. It is an honor that Bishop Allotey sought to visit us."

The partnership could include teaching and research exchanges with St. Nicholas Seminary, Ghana’s first independent Anglican Seminary, located in Cape Coast, and opportunities for seminarians in Bp. Allotey's diocese to study at General Seminary. Bp. Allotey is also interested in post-ordination studies overseas for clergy in his diocese and overseas missional training for laity. The Anglican Diocese of Cape Coast, established in 1981, serves the central region of Ghana, with a population of about 1.6 million, almost half of whom are Christian.
