Pyne Memorial Presentations:
Ministry with Persons with Disabilities

VIDEO ARCHIVE RESOURCES

Professor Margaret Pyne, in whose memory this lecture series is named, was a lifelong advocate for persons with disabilities.  A former Associate Dean of Special Education at Lesley College, Margaret Pyne had a particular vision of the need to educate theological students about ministry for and with persons with special needs. This is a topic that touches all of us, yet is too often relegated to the margins.  Thanks to the Pyne Endowment Trust established by her estate for this purpose, the topic of ministry with persons with disabilities is front and center in STM’s Continuing Education program on an annual basis.
