At present I am a senior lecturer and acting head of theology at St. Augustine College in Johannesburg, South Africa. Now in my 32nd year in South Africa, I have worked at this rather newly established independent Catholic College, the only one in South Africa, for the past 12 years. Previous to that I lectured and served in administration for nineteen years at St. Joseph Theological Institute, a seminary cum theological institute in KwaZulu Natal.
I received a BA degree from Marygrove College, Detroit, an MA in Liturgical Studies from the University of Notre Dame, and a DTh in Christian Spirituality from the University of South Africa in 2004.
After completing my MA in 1982, I was missioned by the IHM’s in 1985 to South Africa where I have worked ever since, initially in both pastoral and academic work, but since 1995 primarily in academics. I have lectured in liturgy and spirituality, and as other needs arise in our small College, various other areas of pastoral theology and scripture.
At the end of this joyous Christmas season we will return to our own towns, to the ordinary-ness of our daily routines and rituals…But perhaps in a new way the manifestation of the divine indwelling of a ‘sleeping child’ will bring us like Mary and Joseph to wonder and amazement at the gifts we have received…VIEW
