Alison Cheek celebrates the Eucharist with the Rev. William A. Wendt, rector of St. Stephen and the Incarnation, in November 1974 in Washington, D.C. Photo: Harry Naltchayan/The Washington Post via Getty Images[Episcopal News Service] The Rev. Alison Cheek, one of the first female priests in The Episcopal Church and the first to publicly celebrate the Eucharist, died on Sept. 1 at her home in Brevard, North Carolina, according to friends. She was 92.Cheek was one of the Philadelphia Eleven, the first women to be ordained to the priesthood in The Episcopal Church. She and 10 other women were ordained at the Church of the Advocate in Philadelphia on July 29, 1974, two years before the ordination of women was officially authorized by General Convention. The highly controversial ordinations were later affirmed as valid.“I sort of risked everything to do it,” she recalled on the 40th anniversary of her ordination. “I would do it again.”Cheek was no stranger to bold moves. Born near Adelaide, Australia, in 1927, she was raised Methodist and graduated from the University of Adelaide, according to one of her former parishes. In 1957, she and her husband, Bruce, moved to the Washington, D.C., area, where she became a lay minister at several Episcopal churches while raising four children. In 1963, she became one of the first two women admitted to the Master of Divinity program at Virginia Theological Seminary, from which she graduated in 1969. With encouragement from her rector, she pursued ordination to the diaconate and became the first female deacon in the South in 1972.During a retreat, she experienced a powerful spiritual calling to do something that had never been done before. She heard the voice of God telling her, “I want you to be my priest,” she later told the Chicago Tribune.“It was a powerful experience. It’s why I never thought of giving up,” Cheek said.The Rev. Alison Cheek, a newly ordained priest, is carried by the Rev. William A. Wendt and the Rev. Lauren Mead at the Church of St. Stephen and the Incarnation on Aug. 5, 1974, in Washington, D.C. Photo: Harry Naltchayan/The Washington Post via Getty ImagesAnd she didn’t, even though she expected she would be deposed – permanently excluded from any ordained ministry – after the Philadelphia ceremony.“When the opportunity to go to the Philadelphia ordination came, I thought, ‘Well, if they toss me out, at least I’ll go witnessing to what I believe about the Gospel and about women’s appropriateness for being priests, and being true to what I believed,’” she said in 2014.Amid the heated controversy that followed the Philadelphia Eleven ordinations, Cheek was invited to celebrate the Eucharist – something no woman had ever done in any Episcopal church – at St. Stephen and the Incarnation Church in Washington. But, according to the Chicago Tribune, after she preached, the local priest read a letter from the bishop saying that she was prohibited from celebrating the Eucharist because the status of her ordination was still in question.“It was a very dramatic service,” she told the Tribune. “You could have heard a pin drop.”Having been blocked at that service, Cheek returned later that year, and on Nov. 10, 1974, she made history yet again, becoming the first female Episcopal priest to publicly celebrate the Eucharist in “a service that ranged from solemn prayer to joyous hugs and bursts of spontaneous applause,” as The Washington Post described it.The Rev. Alison Cheek is featured (top left) on the Jan. 5, 1976, cover of Time.Cheek was one of 12 American women selected as Time magazine’s 1975 Women of the Year, and she was featured on the cover in clerical dress.During the 1970s, Cheek also studied at the Washington Institute of Pastoral Psychotherapy and started her own counseling practice. After her husband’s death in 1977, she closed her practice and became co-director of a Venture in Mission fundraising program in Philadelphia. Later, she completed a Doctor of Ministry at Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and joined the faculty as director of feminist liberation studies.In 1996, Cheek joined the Greenfire Community and Retreat Center in Tenants Harbor, Maine, as a board member and teacher until its closure, and she served at nearby St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. She retired in 2013 to North Carolina, where she lived among friends.“Her abiding sense of joy, her obvious intelligence, and deep passion for the Gospel of Jesus, combined with a delightful touch of mischief in her eye made her an irresistible and unforgettable presence,” recalled a friend, Elizabeth Kaeton, on Facebook. “She was a wonderful teacher and role model for the women for whom she helped make possible the actualization of their priestly vocation in The Episcopal Church. When her story is told, it will be said that we once walked among giants.”Other members of the Philadelphia Eleven, who remained close with Cheek until her death, shared their remembrances on Facebook as well.According to the Rev. Alla Bozarth, she is survived by six “sisters” in the Philadelphia Eleven, as well as her four children.A memorial service is scheduled for Nov. 2 at 11 a.m. at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Brevard, North Carolina.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreText description provided by the architects. There was an original project, which was built up to a structural level. It was kept like that, unfinished, as many others. The pre-existence was a very powerful mass of reinforced concrete, characterized by the two facades of the first floor that, acting as beams of great edge, support a generous projection of more than 6 meters. It is also noteworthy the sunken courtyards, which allow the total occupation of the basement, so that much of the living area of the house remains hidden under the ground. On the street level, the aim was to read the completed work as an intersection or twin of two different volumes, with different finishing, on which the lighting holes of the house were punctually drilled.Save this picture!© Iñaki BergeraSave this picture!Planta nivel de sueloSave this picture!© Iñaki BergeraAfter ten years an opportunity to finish the work and rethink the project arises. New intentions guide the development of the proposal. Having perceived too many tensions in a plot of tight dimensions, we try to compensate for the disturbing balance of the upper volume in projection by shaping a raised transverse platform that will help, in turn, to bridge the gap between the interior of the house and the garden. This gesture suggests a more rooted settlement of the house on the ground, an idea that can be supported by treating the sunken courtyards as an extension of the facades. These strategies help to highlight the horizontal component. It is proposed, in this way, a composition of superimposed strips, configured by a coating of zinc and wood, which lighten and dissolve the perception of the original masses, provide a homogeneous, monolithic, more serene image, absorb and integrate the different gaps, include the sliding shutters of solar protection and darkening and, moreover, they almost completely dilute the original presence of the two volumes. The same pattern taken into the interior of the house abounds in the intention to perpetuate the leaks and dissolve the boundaries, providing a greater sense of spaciousness.Save this picture!© Iñaki BergeraThe apparent sobriety and the exterior secrecy of the house contrasts with a cheerful and bright interior, achieved thanks to the roof skylights and the generosity of the basement spaces.Save this picture!© Iñaki BergeraProject gallerySee allShow lessIntricate Illustrations of Italo Calvino’s ‘Invisible Cities’Architecture NewsLive From WAF: Reinier de Graaf, Jeanne Gang, Li Xiaodong, Peter CookArchitecture News Share Antoni Vaillo, Juan Luis Irigaray, Iñigo Beguiristáin ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/906639/jih-house-refurbishment-vaillo-plus-irigaray-architects-plus-inigo-beguiristain Clipboard Spain “COPY” CopyAbout this officeIñigo BeguiristainOfficeFollowVaillo + Irigaray ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationPamplonaSpainPublished on November 28, 2018Cite: “Jih House Refurbishment / Vaillo + Irigaray Architects + Iñigo Beguiristain” [Remodelación Casa Jih / Vaillo + Irigaray Architects & Iñigo Beguiristain] 28 Nov 2018.

Women are often the providers of that unpaid support rather than beneficiaries. Therefore women who wish to enter the political system need financial support – and women of colour, disabled women and women on low income need particular support to overcome multiple barriers to their participation. We need women from all backgrounds and experiences to get elected in order to make the system work for most people and not just a few.” The fund is supported by Emma Thompson, who donated £50,000 to kick-start the first round. Empowering Women Fund offers grants from £500 to £25,000 Activate, a UK fund supporting women from underrepresented groups to run for political office, has announced its first list of candidates. Activate raised £51,000 from Emma Thompson’s donation and a crowdfunder in the first quarter of 2020. It has also received funding from the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust, and is currently taking applications for its Community Activist Fund to support women to expand their local campaigning impact and consider standing in future. Thompson said: More funding for women Sophie Walker added: “We’ve seen most recently in the United States the difference that funding grassroots community-based activists can make to improving the political representation of women from minoritised groups. The Activate team is working hard to help brilliant women in the UK bring their talents and experience into politics here – for the benefit of everyone.” The list of candidates includes Jessie Joe Jacobs, Labour Candidate for Tees Valley Mayor – standing to become the first ever female metro mayor; Mandu Reid, Women’s Equality Party candidate for London Mayor; April Preston, Liberal Democrat Candidate for Manchester City Council; Molly Samuel-Leport, Conservative candidate for Greater London Assembly, and Emily West, Green Party Candidate for Rotherham Council. The full list can be found on the site. Activate is funding 11 women running for five different parties in the spring local and mayoral elections across five parts of England – London, the Midlands, North East, North West, and Yorkshire and Humber. The list includes eight women of colour, one disabled woman and one care leaver. Seven of the 11 women are from low-income households or identify as working class. Standing for election is estimated to cost the candidate on average £11,000, with huge variants depending on location and whether the seat is marginal. By lowering financial barriers for these candidates to stand, campaign and win, Activate aims to help politics better represent the national population. Melanie May | 17 November 2020 | News
