Event Details

We are pleased to welcome the Reverend Naim Ateek, founder of Sabeel, and Tarek Abuta, Executive Director of Friends of Sabeel North America (FOSNA), to Seattle. Rev. Ateek and Mr. Abuta will be in town to mark the launch of the Bishop Edmund Lee Browning Memorial Fund, honoring the former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. Bishop Browning was instrumental in the founding of FOSNA and one of the strongest supporters of Sabeel.

The Fund is being created to support seminarians and seminary faculty who wish to go on witness trips to Palestine.

Bishop Rickel will host a public reception at the Diocesan House, a block north of St. Mark’s Cathedral. All are welcome!
