Adult Education at CEC is led by Fr. Bruce Gowe and Rev. Sidnie White-Crawford.

Fr. Bruce comes to the Episcopal Church from the Methodist tradition in which he grew up and was previously a pastor. Ordained in 2022 to the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Bethlehem, Fr. Bruce brings a fresh approach to adult education, with a welcoming and compassionate spirit.

Rev. Sidnie, in addition to being our Assisting Priest, is also an internationally known Hebrew scholar and one of the editors of the NRSV. We can’t express how fortunate we are to have Rev. Sidnie. If you’ve never heard of her, you may want to check out her publications profile on Google Scholar.

Sunday Adult Forum

Led by Rev. Sidnie White-Crawford, Adult Forum meets between Masses on Sundays during the regular year and before the 9:15 Mass in summer.

Currently, the group is studying Romans.
