Convocation

Registration is now OPEN for Alumni/ae Convocation 2020. All events are free, including events hosted by Yale Divinity School and Berkeley Divinity School. Find the master schedule for all three schools on Yale Divinity School’s event page. Find Andover Newton’s schedule at-a-glance and descriptions of workshops on our web calendar.

Each year Andover Newton alumni/ae have the opportunity to reconnect by attending the Fall Alumni/ae Convocation. This event, which is usually held on campus in New Haven, will be online this year (2020). The plenary and workshops will be spread out between October 20th and 23rd in order to provide attendees the chance to attend multiple events that would typically overlap during the in-person gathering.

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. 

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.

“Andover Newton Seminary at Yale Divinity School is a family to me and many students that are part of it. The kind of community that Andover Newton offers is one of welcome and hospitality. There is no doubt that it has brought its unique flavor – a flavor of welcoming, love, and joy.”
Abner Cotto-Bonilla, MDiv ‘18
