"Justice is the Corporate Face of Love"

November 19, 2019
By Fr. David

If you are from the Diocese of Texas, you know the name John Hines well.  Hines served as a bishop in the diocese from 1945 to 1965 when he was elected Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church. He served in that role until 1974.  Of note to the SAES family is the fact that Hines was the founding bishop of St. Stephen's Episcopal School in Austin. 

Hines lived a life of promoting social justice. He was especially passionate about the racial injustice he saw as a plague on our country during the turbulent years of his ministry. Austin saw this first hand in his efforts to integrate St. Stephen's in light of fierce and harsh criticism.
