May Short-Term Resident Scholars June 12, 2015 By Collegeville Institute Leave a Comment During the month of May, the Collegeville Institute hosted two short-term resident scholars: Mary Frances Coady and John Lewis. Mary Frances Coady is a freelance writer from Toronto, Canada. She is the author of Merton and Waugh: A Monk, A Crusty Old Man, and The Seven Storey Mountain, published in the spring of 2015 by Paraclete Press. Part of this book was written during the 2012 Apart and Yet A Part summer writing workshop. She was a resident scholar in the fall of 2013. During her short-term residency this May, she was working on the early stages of some fiction. Read Mary Frances Coady’s recent contribution to Bearings Online: Beyond The Seven Storey Mountain: Remembering Thomas Merton. John Lewis is an Episcopalian priest from San Antonio, TX. He is a member of the Collegeville Institute’s Seminar on Vocation and Faith in the Professions, and founder and co-director of the WorkShop, an organization that disciples people in the way of Jesus and helps them find their way to a richer, more joyful life. During his short-term residency, John was working on a book that will be co-authored by Rev. Jane Patterson, PhD., as well as planning for a fall retreat focusing on first Thessalonians.
