A beautiful spring weekend graced the commencement exercises for Berkeley’s Class of 2019, as twenty-four students received Anglican diplomas and certificates, and seven YDS graduates received the certificate for Educational Leadership and Ministry.
Associate Dean Cathy George preached at the Berkeley Evensong service (link to text here), and David Wilson, Berkeley’s
