Current St. Catherine University students, faculty, alumnae/i, and friends of the master of arts in theology program are invited to celebrate the teaching and scholarship of retiring theology professor Ed Sellner on Thursday, April 16 at 7 p.m., in Coeur de Catherine, room 355, on the University's St. Paul campus.

The celebration is the second in the Thinking Theologically series, which features theology professors discussing their latest research.

After almost thirty-four years of teaching, Professor Ed Sellner will retire at the end of this school year.

Sellner is a prolific scholar who has published more than ten books and countless articles in contemporary theology, pastoral care, and spirituality.

The evening will feature a presentation and discussion on the friendship between the Cistercian monk Thomas Merton and the Zen writer D.T. Suzuki, and the implications that friendship has for inter-religious dialogue today. Sellner has been invited to present on this topic in June 2016 at the 100th anniversary of Merton's birth at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky.

An informal reception with light snacks follows.

To RSVP or for further information, please email theology department office coordinator, Gloria Blaha or call 651-690-6017.
