Congratulations to Dr. Susan McGurgan, Director of the Lay Pastoral Ministry Program, for being named the Marten Visiting Fellow in Preaching at the University of Notre Dame.
Dr. McGurgan has been chosen from a number of candidates from around the country and will teach for the fall semester of 2020.
The Fellowship includes teaching Homiletics II to Holy Cross seminarians and lay students in the MDiv program, offering the Marten Lecture in Preaching, and undertaking research that she hopes will lead to publication.
She holds a BA in History, an MA in Religion and a Doctorate in Ministry in Preaching. In addition to teaching and administrative duties, she has served as past president of the Catholic Association of Teachers of Homiletics and has published in the areas of preaching and lay ministry.
According to Dr. McGurgan, “I am honored to be named the Marten Visiting Fellow in Preaching for 2020. I am excited about the opportunity to teach in the MDiv program and work on an ongoing research project exploring the intersection of collective memory, hope, and preaching. I am grateful to Fr. Michael Connors, C.S.C., and the faculty of the Theology Department at Notre Dame for their confidence. I’m also thankful to Fr. Brausch, Fr. Endres, Fr. Ruiz and Barb Yoder, who have offered both encouragement and the practical support needed for this sabbatical to occur.”
