RUTH BENNETT has become an Episcopalian since graduating from YDS. Having spent so much time in the UK in the last 40 years, she gradually made her way from the Methodist church there to the Episcopal Church (USA), and is very happy. She is a member at Grace Episcopal in Madison, NJ, and Hampstead Parish Church, also called St. John’s Hampstead, in London NW3. Essentially she is in New Jersey from the end of September to the end of May and then resides in London the remaining four months. In London, most of her time centers around groups at Hampstead Parish Church and classes in Sacred Art at The National Gallery, usually followed by an art history trip to France or Italy. Back in the States, she is involved in church and art activities, too. This April, after four years of discernment, Ruth became a companion in The Society of the Companions of the Holy Cross, a world-wide Episcopal women’s organization. At Grace she is part of a vibrant centering prayer group. The Metropolitan Museum of Art substitutes for The National Gallery’s wealth of classes while she is here in the U.S.
