MA Theology, May 2020

You have accomplished much in these years with us and your studies have informed your ministries as a pastoral leader, educator, and spiritual formator. 
The examination of the Nigeran reality and identification of the need for new approaches to interreligious dialogue is a major contribution to religious peacebuilding in your country. 
My prayer is that you continue to progress with your studies and ministry. You have many gifts to share, and I pray you will do so with many. 
God bless you in your future endeavors.  – Sr. Marianne Farina, CSC 

Advisor: Sr. Marianne Farina, CSC, Professor of Philosophy & Theology

Exam Option - Capstone Paper Title: “Strengthening Interfaith Dialogue: An Urgent Call for the People in Nigeria”

This research demonstrated that a critical pedagogy for interfaith dialogue is an essential component for peacebuilding in Nigeria. The rationale and proposals presented in this work have the potential to foster other forms of social and religious formation aimed at promoting integral and solidaristic development.

of human and Christian life, such as those concerned with basic moral principles (freedom, responsibility, intentionality, and the relation between who we are and what we do), as well as the fundamental principles of Christology: just who really is Jesus Christ in relation to God and to us.
