Two bishops awarded honorary doctorates
from staff reports
Bishop Abraham Gondi-Theodore of Nandyal (South India) and Bishop John Chien
Bishop Peter James Lee (Virginia, US), chairman of the seminary's board of trustees, presented the degrees. Consecrated in 1994, Bishop Abraham has shaped his ministry to place emphasis upon youth work, adult literacy, lay leadership, ecumenical relations, and especially work with the poor and ``those who have no helper,'' seminary leaders say.
Consecrated in 1988, Bishop Chien is known for his administrative abilities, patience, pastoral skills, and visionary leadership, the seminary notes. As bishop he has expanded ordained and lay ministries and fostered theological education.
