Where better to hear a woman’s perspective on our faith than at an all-girls Catholic high school? Patty Gorman, head of the SMA theology department, has arranged for Katherine Greiner, Ph.D. to speak at St. Mary’s on Thursday, April 5th at 7:00 p.m. in the Clark Family Auditorium, followed by a wine and cheese reception for guests to gather and continue the conversation. Open to the public, Dr. Greiner’s topic is “The Wild Hearts of Women Mystics: Lessons for Our Time.”

Dr. Greiner is a perfect fit for St. Mary’s with roots in Oregon. She was raised in Newberg, has three great-aunts who were Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary and also taught for four years at an all-girls Catholic high school in Boston.

Her research includes American Catholicism, feminist and contextual theologies, Christian spirituality in contemporary society and higher education, and ministry in the Catholic Church today. She is a regular contributor to the blog Daily Theology.

Dr. Greiner has been studying and teaching theology nearly all of her life. She earned a doctorate in theology and education from Boston College in 2017, her M.T.S. from Weston Jesuit School of Theology in 2007 and her bachelor’s in history and theology from Carroll College in 2005.
