Forsyth.  It’s a privilege to represent Knox students on the TGSA board, and I hope our work enhances the experience of all TST grad students.  In my spare time, I’m involved in a multi-decade project of raising a family, and I get out on trails whenever I can.

Regis – Meghan Bowen (2019-2021)

Previous work has included an articulation of a positive masculine identity informed by Christian theology; studies of the Catholic marriage rite and the Orthodox rite of crowning; and the need to develop a stronger understanding within Catholic sacramental theology of the spirituality of marriage. Before beginning studies in theology, Bowen earned degrees in music performance and in ethnomusicology. Aside from her academic pursuits, she enjoys sewing and embroidery, watching war movies, and geeking out over liturgy.
