By Katie Hargis
Early on the morning of Jan. 8, 2014, 19 students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of The School of Theology gathered at the Miami International Airport to begin the journey to Cuba. Several hours later they stepped off of the plane at the José Martí Airport in Havana, Cuba. I was fortunate to be part of this trip that quickly turned into a trip of “firsts” for me.

Sewanee's liturgics faculty continues to contribute meaningfully to the life of the Church.
