Fred Herron, who has just started GSRRE's Doctor of Ministry program this Fall, is taking the doctoral program in reverse! Fred published a well-received book this Summer, just before starting the program. Fred Herron is Interim Executive Director and Director of Ministry at Mount Manresa Jesuit Retreat House in Staten Island and Chairperson of the Religious Studies Department at Fontbonne Hall Academy.
Tuning the Rig: Catholic Schools for a Learning Church (University Press of America) by Fred Herron, here are some recent reviews:
" An exceptional job of communicating key challenges to Catholic Educators, providing purposeful examples to model through their imagination, dialogue and community of discipleship. It will be a must for my students.
"—Dr. Gerald M. Cattaro, executive director, Catholic School Leadership and Faith Based Education, Graduate School of Education, Fordham University
"...An authentic voice whose scholarship brings the Good News as the curriculum of our lives and of our work. Each chapter provides Catholic school educators perspectives for reflection and growth in their transformative work with the young."
Professor Robert J. Starratt, The Lynch School, Boston College
We are happy to have Fred in our student body and look forward to his future endeavors.
