A Message from STRS Dean Very Rev. Mark Morozowich

The Paschal Mystery solemnly celebrated in these days engages us more fully in the Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ. May our daily lives be Icons of this Mystery as we strive for holiness!

As this academic year quickly draws to a close, please join in praying for our students during their paper and exam preparations.


Recent Publications

  • Dr Ian Boxall Publishes New Book on Matthew’s Gospel

    Dr Ian Boxall’s new book Discovering Matthew: Content, interpretation, reception has just been published by SPCK. This introduction to the interpretation of Matthew’s Gospel draws on a range of methodological approaches (author-, text- and reader-centered), as complementary rather than mutually exclusive ways of interpreting the Gospel. In particular, it reflects the growing scholarly attention to the reception history of biblical texts.

  • Msgr. Irwin Publishes New Book

    The Paulist Press has just published Msgr. Irwin’s latest book entitled: What We Have Done. What We Have Failed To Do. Assessing the Liturgical Reforms of Vatican II. In this book Msgr. Irwin invites discussion about a number of things about what (especially American) Catholics have done to implement the liturgies that were revised after the Second Vatican Council. Topics include: church renewal, active participation, making memory together, the sacramental principle, liturgical translations, the proclamation of the word and the liturgical homily, liturgical roles and presiding at liturgy, the arts (architecture and music), liturgical education and mystagogy, devotions and spirituality.
