Maureen O’Connell explores community engaged learning

Maureen O’Connell participated late June, in the first of three mid-career colloquia at the Wabash Center. Here, she explored community engaged learning. From there, she travelled to Melbourne, Australia, where she gave a keynote address at a religious education conference through the Archdiocese of Melbourne. She also gave a series of workshops for educators on “Pedagogies of Mercy.” In md-August, Maureen co-facilitated a two-day retreat on “Women’s Theologies of Justice” through POWER, which she attended with AJ Jenkins. This retreat was designed for 60 women of various faith traditions from Philadelphia and its surrounding areas. Here, women engaged in faith-based community organizing. Later, Maureen participated in a colloquium at Fairfield University on “The Future of Catholic Systematic Theology.” Here, she was part of a panel that imaged what would be going on in the field at the 100th anniversary of Vatican 11 in 2066. Finally, Maureen participated in a conference on Theological Anthropology at the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium. This was titled “Relation, Vulnerability, and Love,” where she responded to a plenary session on civic virtues for a global economy and contributed to a panel on the arts and vulnerability.
