Annual Fund

December 3, 2018

Dear Friends,

Each year, in Advent and at Easter, I write you with news of what is happening at CDSP in the hopes of inspiring you to support us with a donation. And while we have plenty of good news to share—about our success in recruiting top students; developing an outstanding faculty; and serving an ever-increasing number of dioceses—the simple fact is this:

Your donation to CDSP helps us to offer students more generous financial aid packages. More generous aid packages translate into lower student debt. Students less encumbered by debt have the freedom to take risks, to establish non-traditional ministries, to spread good news to people in places our church has too long ignored. And in supporting these students, each of us plays a part in breathing new life into our church.

This is a season of anticipation, a time of preparation. As you prepare to celebrate the feast of the Incarnation, please support us in preparing leaders for God’s church that is now and always being made new.

May God bless you richly this Advent season and into Christmastide.


The Very Rev. W. Mark Richardson
President and Dean
