    Sister Katarina Schuth, O.S.F., St. Paul Seminary School of Divinity, again was honored for her recent book, Seminaries, Theologates, and the Future of Church Ministry. Her study is highlighted as the Book Symposium topic in the Feb. 11 issue of Commonweal. Three contributors reviewed and responded to the new book.

In addition, Serra’s article, “The Greeting of Peace in the Revised Sacramentary: A New Pastoral Option,” was published this month in the festschrift, Liturgy for the New Millennium: A Commentary on the Revised Sacramentary, edited by Mark Francis, C.S.V., and Keith Pecklers, S.J. (Collegeville: Liturgical Press).

    Dr. Fred Zimmerman, Department of Manufacturing Systems and Engineering, delivered a keynote address, “The Economy, Productivity and Real Work,” to the Norex Corp. Key Leader Program Feb. 3.
