CEA/Providence College Center for Theology & Religious Studies is thrilled to announce an exciting addition to their faculty for the Spring 2013 semester. Dr. Paul Gondreau has been appointed The Center's new Faculty Resident Director for the semester, and we couldn't be more excited.
Dr. Gondreau received both his Doctorate and Licentiate in Sacred Theology from the University of Fribourg, Switzerland. He teaches classes and publishes works on topics including moral theology, marriage, Christology and sacraments, with a specialization in the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas. He also works as an associate editor of Nova et Vetera, English edition - a theological and philosophical journal.
At the CEA/Providence College Center for Theology & Religious Studies next Spring, Dr. Gondreau will teach "The New Testament in the Eternal City" - a core course required on this program.
