Greetings from Nashotah House!

Over the years, I’ve had the honor of being part of the Nashotah House community in several capacities: I am a graduate of the House (MTS, ’15) and have worked as an editor for the Missioner magazine and coordinator for The Chapter. I’m delighted to now serve as Alumni Associate for the House. 

For 180 years and counting, the Nashotah House alumni community has provided opportunities to engage in the life of the House and with one another. Whether we are missionaries to our workplaces, chaplains in the military or parish priests, whether we are local or called to live around the world, alumni connect to celebrate this “thin place” called Nashotah House. 

The Rev. Hiram Kano, a graduate of Nashotah House’s class of 1946, said, “We must firmly believe that our hearts are the palace of our God; then our world will become more light. Strength with hope will be given to us.” Nashotah House offers real presence and real preparation; this kind of formation trains our hearts for the ministries to which we are called.

We at Nashotah House are committed to providing you with resources to support your life of ministry. Please read on to learn about some of our current alumni initiatives and others that are in the works.

  • Essentials for Ministry Webinar: Energizing the Laity through Mission and Outreach - April 27, 2023

    Join us at 12:00 PM CST on Thursday, April 27, 2023, for this live webinar.

    During her career as an Ambassador and Foreign Service Officer, Cynthia Efird was an active member of Anglican parishes in Belgrade, Berlin, Vienna, Maputo, Luanda, and Moscow. Since retiring she has worked on ties between Anglican parishes and dioceses in Malawi, Angola, Mozambique and South Africa and the U.S. Episcopal dioceses of Washington, D.C., New Hampshire and others. She has now moved to Wisconsin, attends Zion in Oconomowoc, but continues to work on the Angola Committee and the Southern Africa LInk Committee (EDOW).

    She has seen first-hand the energy and increase in devotion that an active mission link can bring to parish life. In this webinar, Cynthia will discuss her own experiences and offer practical suggestions on how to establish, nurture and take advantage of the experience of outreach within the Anglican Communion. She will also comment on the challenges of representing both Christ and the U.S. government.

    Email Rebecca Terhune at for more details.
