Author and theologian Elizabeth Johnson, CSJ speaks at The O'Shaughnessy

Thursday night's bad weather didn't prevent a capacity crowd from coming to The O'Shaughnessy to hear author and theologian Elizabeth Johnson, CSJ present the second annual Myser Initiative on Catholic Identity lecture "Seeking the Living God: Nourishing Faith with the Living Tradition."

Johnson, distinguished professor of theology at Fordham University in New York, has authored numerous books. Her most recent, Quest for the Living God: Mapping Frontiers in the Theology of God, was published in 2007.

The College of St. Catherine's Myser Initative has been made possible through the generous gift of Patricia O'Connor Myser '56 and her husband, John (Buzz) Myser.

St. Kate's established the Initiative to deepen the institution’s Catholic heritage and to infuse Catholic approaches to moral and communal challenges across the curriculum. Amata Miller, IHM, professor in economics, is the current director of the Myser Initiative.
