Hines '66 Elected to Lead Catholic Theological Society

Dr. Mary Hines '66, Professor of Theology, was recently elected Vice President of the Catholic Theological Society of America (CTSA), the principal association of Catholic theologians in North America.

Dr. Mary Hines '66, Professor of Theology, was recently elected Vice President (and thus, future President) of the Catholic Theological Society of America (CTSA), the principal association of Catholic theologians in North America. Founded in 1946, the Society currently boasts a membership of more than 1300, with active membership open to those who possess a doctorate in theology or related studies and who are or have been engaged in teaching and research.

Voting took place at the CTSA's annual convention, which took place from June 11-14, 2015, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The election marks the beginning of a three-year term for Dr. Hines, during which she will assume the role of President-elect after one year of the vice presidency and ultimately serve as President in 2017.

Dr. Hines has been involved with the Society for a number of years in different roles - as treasurer, as a board member and as a member of many committees. As Vice President, she's enthusiastic about continuing to advance the organization's mission through her role in planning the convention that will take place during the year she is President-elect.

"I hope to find a theme that is interesting and engaging for theologians and their research," Hines said. "The Society's purpose is to promote theological research that is attentive to contemporary problems faced by the Church and the world, and we'll continue to focus on those issues.

"It's certainly an honor," she added. "One of the interesting things about my election, and one of the reasons that I am most excited, is that the majority of past presidents have come from large universities. It speaks well of Emmanuel, and I'm grateful for the support of my colleagues."
