Come and support the research of some of our upperclass students in Theology and Pastoral Ministry!

Saint Mary’s Hall

1. Ashley Walz: “‘Ordain a Lady?’ An Analysis of the Ordination of Women”
This presentation takes a critical approach to discussing the history, differing viewpoints and arguments made in the discussion of female ordination.

Iconoclasm acted as a major controversy in the 8th and 9th centuries. This presentation considers its causes and effects.

This paper examines John Paul II's Theology of the Body to better understand the hermeneutic of the gift and spousal implications of the eucharistic liturgy.
