CFTS visit 2012
Last week we welcomed the students and faculty of the Congregational Foundation for Theological Studies (CFTS) to the library. CFTS was established by the National Association of Congregational Christian Churches (NACCC) in 1961 as an alternative to founding its own seminary. Each year CFTS holds the "Congregational History and Polity Seminar" in Boston. Students from various seminaries attend this seminar. While in Boston the students attend lectures, visit historical sites, and begin research into topics on Congregational history and polity. The staff of the library were glad to welcome and assist these students, and provide materials from the library and archive to create the foundation for their research projects.
Rev. Dr. Betsey Mauro is Dean of the program and a member of the Board of Directors of the Congregational Library.
