B. A., MDiv, PhD
- Teaching and Research Areas
I teach courses such as the Mystery of the Triune God; Creation, Fall, Grace and Glory; Research Methods; Theology of the Holy Spirit; Trinitarian Approaches to Religious Diversity. My area of research is, generally speaking, in the intersection of Trinitarian theology and historical movements and realities. Currently I am working of a SSHRC funded project with colleagues Gilles Routhier (Laval) and Michael Attridge (St Michael’s) entitled: “One Canada Two Catholicism: Divergent Evolutions in the Catholic Church in Quebec And Ontario, 1965-1985.”
