Two Doctors at Blessed Giles

Blessed Giles Friary in Chicago now has two Doctors in the house.

Congratulations to Fr. Dan Horan of Holy Name Province, who successfully defended his PhD thesis at Boston College on December 5. Fr. Dan, who is teaching at CTU this year, says his subject area was ‘systematic theology’ and the title of his dissertation is ‘Imagining Planetarity: Toward a Postcolonial Franciscan Theology of Creation.’

In April, Fr. John Barker of our SJB Province successfully defended his dissertation (also at Boston College) on ‘Disputed Temple: A Rhetorical Analysis of the Book of Haggai’.
