Rev. Don Bolen will be the fourth incumbent in the Father Peter Nash, SJ, Chair in Religion, joining the Campion College faculty for the winter 2009 term.
Rev. Bolen received a BA and Honours Certificate in Religion from Campion College, University of Regina. He went on to complete both an MA and L.Th. at St. Paul University in Ottawa. Rev. Bolen was ordained a priest in the Archdiocese of Regina in 1991, and worked in parish ministry until 1994, when he went to Oxford University (St. Benet's Hall) to start his doctoral studies.
Rev. Bolen's teaching career in the religious studies department at Campion College (1997-2001) was interrupted by a call from the Vatican to work at the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, serving on the commissions for International Anglican-Roman Catholic dialogues. His work in Rome ends this summer, and he plans to spend the autumn completing his doctoral dissertation before returning to the Archdiocese of Regina.
