We extend a warm and enthusiastic congratulations to Foundation faculty member, The Rev. Francis Leong, MM, on the 25th Anniversary of his priestly ordination!
The Rev. Fr. Bernard O'Connor is currently Scholar In Residence at the Foundation. He is Fellow and John Henry Cardinal Newman Professor of Theology and Ecclesial Mediation and for many years worked in the Vatican serving the Congregation of Eastern Churches. Read his faculty profile for a complete biography.
This month, you are at the Foundation in Mishawaka as our first "Scholar In Residence." Can you describe the work you are doing in this role?
The concept of a Scholar in Residence for the Foundation arose during a conversation with Dr. John Morgan when we met at the 2012 Commencement. I had indicated that there is a period between semesters at Indiana University Kokomo when I would be available for an academic experience beyond my customary role at IUK. And since I have been associated with the Foundation since 1996, it was reasonable to propose a brief 'residency' (three weeks) at GTF.
