I want to inspire students to engage in theological/philosophical study and discourse on the critical topics facing today's global communities. I guide them to find resources for further explorations and to develop the skills necessary to share knowledge with others. My teaching style includes lectures and seminar discussion. In my teaching, research, and pastoral ministry I want to promote dialogue.
I believe that “the synonym for dialogue is learning.” Through (dia) our exchange of words (logos) we can deepen knowledge of ourselves and others. Dialogue helps us to think critically and engage with the realities of others holistically. Critical to these dialogues is the commitment to conversation with various groups as outlined in Paul VI's first encyclical . Pope Paul VI identifies four circles of dialogue: among Catholics, with other Christians, with world religions, and the civil society. Each dialogue supports the other and strengthens relationships in ways that promote the common good, especially when facing difficult contemporary issues like marriage and family, immigration and migration of people, or war and peace.
I hope that students in the classroom will be inspired to engage in ongoing research of the topics explored in the courses and seminars such that their study will have a positive impact on contemporary issues in Church and society. The founder of my religious community, Blessed Basil Moreau, emphasized education as a process of formation, i.e., information serves formation for the sake of transformation. This calls for a pedagogy that can help students to reflect deeply and broadly by engaging different - even opposing - worldviews. Such an approach helps us to deliberate well, choose wisely, and act justly.
