The Stanton Center for Ministry Formation

Equipping the laity of the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas to serve God in His church and the world.

Old Testament class is going great this afternoon. Corona Virus will not keep Stanton Center students from their studies!

It’s working!!!!

Getting ready to host our first Zoom class meeting from the comfort of my easy chair. Bp. Stanton’s Creeds class, lets all pray together that this works! 🙏🙏🙏

[03/13/20]   With much prayerful consideration, we have decided to cancel classes on the 21st of March. So many of us are within the age range which the CDC has determined to be most at risk, we feel that cancelation is the most prudent response.

I’m asking our instructors to contact me with their preferences as to how to make up this missed class. Adding a class day in June might be the simplest solution. I’ll let you all know when that has been decided.

In the meantime, please take care of yourselves. Stay home as much as you can, wash your hands often, and pray for our world, our nation, our diocese, your parishes, and your Stanton Center community.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the Common Cup Fr. David writes that fear shouldn't keep us from the Eucharistic feast... and provides the scientific studies to back it up.


We are all back home tonight after a full weekend of prayer, profundity, worship, wit, food, friendship, silence, and the Spirit at the Stanton Center fall retreat. Thank you Fr. Ryan Pollock for your thought-provoking teaching! And Lucy Tamez Creech, your great food made our time away just perfect!

First day of classes!

As Episcopalians, we are both catholic and reformed. We do not protest against the historic faith and worship of the church, but maintain it. However, we are not Roman Catholic, and we have no pope. We are Anglicans and members of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

The weather held off today long enough for us to celebrate the graduation of Zoe Holmes and Rhonda Shannon with Diplomas in Christian Ministry.
