The College Theology Society, a professional association of college and university professors with a membership of more than 900 from throughout the United States, Canada and Europe, held its 60th annual convention at Saint Vincent College May 29 to June 1. Dr. Jason E. King, right, associate professor of theology at Saint Vincent and co-chair, welcomes Sr. Shannon Schrein, OSF, left, co-chair from Lourdes University, Ohio, and Dr. Sandra Yocum, professor of religious studies at the University of Dayton, and president of CTS. The theme of the convention was “God has begun a Great Work in Us: The Embodiment of Love in Contemporary Consecrated Life and Ecclesial Movements.” The conference examined topics such as the origins of consecrated life, its adaptation to particular times and places, its context in the United States or abroad, the history and current reality of religious orders, monasticism, the adaptation of the evangelical counsels and the rules of religious order to Catholic and Protestant lay communities and others. More than 250 members attended the convention.
