At the previous ATFE Biennial, CATFE members from Minnesota, along with other theological schools close to the region, had offered to host ATFE Biennial 2017 in the Twin Cities. Fr. Allen Kuss and Sr. Charlotte Berres, CSJ from St. Paul Seminary were instrumental in the preparation and success of this endeavor.
At the Catholic caucus gathering, it was announced that Barbara Sutton was finished with her term as part of the CATFE Steering Committee, and Kathleen Castillo of Christ the King Seminary, NY was elected. Fr. Rodel Balagtas and Sr. Leanne Hubbard, SND both from St. John's Seminary, CA will remain on the Steering Committee as they host the next CATFE convocation 2018 in California. There will be an email going out to all Catholic member and non-member schools inviting input on the timely topics to explore together at this meeting.
