Each year Andover Newton alumni/ae have the opportunity to reconnect by attending the Fall Alumni/ae Convocation. This event, now held in New Haven on the Yale Divinity School Campus, offers opportunities to network, sit in on workshops, and hear from current faculty. 

During the Fall Alumni/ae Convocation, Andover Newton honors one alumna/us who has exhibited exemplary skills in ministry by recognizing this person with the “Spirit of the Hill” award. This year’s recipient, Virginia Child, is the chair of the Andover Newton Alumni/ae Board. Volunteering her time, Virginia is helping the board with a series of visioning exercises, which will inform how the board operates in the years to come. We are all grateful for Virginia’s compassionate and reasoned leadership. Congratulations and thank you, Virginia!

Along with the “Spirit of the Hill” award, Alumni/ae Convocation includes worship, workshops, and the Alumni/ae business meeting, where the board and chair outline the current work being performed on behalf of our graduates.
