Adelaide Teague Case

Adelaide Teague Case, Educator, 1948

The Collect:

Almighty and everlasting God, who raises up educators and teachers of the faith in every generation of your church: Grant that following the example of your servant Adelaide Teague Case, we might be bold to proclaim the reconciling power of Christ’s love in our own generation. Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.

Adelaide Teague Case - January 10, 1887 - July 19, 1948 was the first woman appointed to teach at an Episcopal seminary – the Episcopal Theological School, Cambridge, MA. Her interests were Christian education and social reform, and she took part in many educational, social and ecumenical movements including “The Episcopal Pacifist Fellowship.”*

With prayers of thanks for every teacher I’ve ever had and for all the teachers in my own family.
