The Commission for Theological Education for Latin America and the Caribbean (CETALC) has awarded 26 grants in six categories plus administrative funding for more than $299,443 to support the educational, theological and formational needs of the church in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The grants were approved by the Episcopal Church Executive Council at its October meeting.
CETALC was formed after the 1976 closing of the Episcopal Seminary of the Caribbean, located in Puerto Rico. At that time, the Episcopal Church Executive Council established the Trust Fund for Theological Education for Latin America and the Caribbean, with the funds from the sale of the property earmarked to support the theological education programs of the dioceses that were using the seminary.
The six categories of CETALC grants are: diocesan programs; provincial and regional programs; continued theological education; research and production in the theological field; graduate studies scholarships; Leonardo Romero scholarships.
