Gerald Schlabach

"I am an associate professor of theology at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. Previously I taught history at Bluffton College, a Mennonite liberal arts college in Ohio. I received my doctorate from the University of Notre Dame, where I studied ethics in the Department of Theology. During much of the 1980s I worked in Central America with Mennonite Central Committee, a organization dedicated to peace, justice, Christ-like service and global education. A Roman Catholic as of Pentecost 2004, I am a Benedictine oblate, am deeply involved in the Bridgefolk movement for grassroots dialogue and unity between Mennonites and Catholics, and continue to call myself a "Mennonite Catholic.""
