Cancelled due to Covid19 Pandemic: 52nd Atlantic Seminar in Theological Education!

Theme: Falling in Love with the Earth: Embracing Compassion for Life
When: June 14-19, 2020
Where: Tatamagouche Centre, Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, Canada

To our ASTE Community:

Like all of you, we have been following the concerns surrounding COVID-19 the last few weeks. Throughout our country, restrictions have been put in place to care for our most vulnerable. This has meant that activities and programs that we usually participate in have had to be cancelled.

Since the beginning of this week the Steering Committee has been in conversation about how the ongoing situation affects our upcoming Seminar. Tatamagouche Centre has closed and suspended it’s programming, until further notice, which was to be our location for this year. After considering the needs of our presenters and seminar attendees we have made the difficult decision to cancel ASTE 2020. We know that this is disheartening for all of us, as our ASTE community holds a special place in all of our hearts.

Some good news is that our Committee is considering the possibility of a shortened fall seminar if the current situation has improved and resources allow for an event to be held. For those who have already registered, our Registrar Max Gourson will be in touch in the near future regarding refunds, or you can contact him using the details below.

Please know that you are in the hearts and minds of the Steering Committee as we all seek to share God’s love in this time of uncertainty.
