So SS102fm wishes him a hearty congratulations on the occasion of his 30th anniversary of priestly ordination and also his appointment as the 2017 Sisters of St John of God Visiting Scholar to the University of Notre Dame in Western Australia for 12 weeks!
Ad multos annos Fr Eamonn and best of luck with the work in Australia.
In a series of three public lectures, Professor Conway, a priest of the Archdiocese of Tuam, will explore the changing nature of the priestly vocation; the state of the planet; and the views of love, marriage and family in light of recent encyclicals by Pope Francis.
Fr Eamonn is currently the Head of Theology and Religious Studies at Mary Immaculate College in Limerick. Professor Selma Alliex, Head of the Fremantle Campus, said Professor Conway’s insights into Catholic theology and mission were significant for Notre Dame as a Catholic university, one that is committed to its objects and supporting the role and work of the Church.
“Professor Conway’s insightful talks will encourage us to place our faith in God at the centre of our being as a university bound by the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. This approach ensures we can help people develop the skills they need in their lives and for their careers,” Professor Alliex said.
As part of The Sisters of St John of God Visiting Scholar program, an eminent scholar in Catholic spirituality visits Notre Dame’s Fremantle Campus for up to 12 weeks each year to provide formation opportunities for staff, students and members of the community.
