Diocese of Jerusalem appoints first female to senior clerical position

The Revd Dr Susan Lukens has been appointed Associate Dean of St George’s College, Jerusalem, effective immediately and for an initial term of at least three years.

Dean Gregory Jenks, said, that Dr. Lukens’ appointment as Associate Dean marks the first time a woman has been appointed to a leadership position in The Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, and in particular at St. George’s College.

“Dr. Lukens brings a diverse set of gifts to this new leadership role at the College. Her background in higher education, her previous service to the College as Minister of Hospitality—and more recently as Communication and Marketing Officer—and her continuing roles as a trustee at Virginia Theological Seminary as well as an Adjunct Professor of Theology at Msalato Theological College at Dodoma in Tanzania, all converge to make Susan especially suited to the role of Associate Dean at St. George’s College. I very much look forward to working with Susan as we share the ministry of Dean to the College community here.”
