Jo has been a teacher of Religious Studies and systematic theologian for some years. She was recently ordained a priest in the Diocese of Adelaide on 28th November, 2020. Although brought up as an Anglican, Jo has spent 25 years as a Roman Catholic Dominican sister, during which time she completed a Ph.D. in systematic theology. Her doctorate is entitled, Revisioning the Ordained Ministry, and involves a correlation between the work of Edward Schillebeeckx, OP and feminist theologians. In more recent years Jo returned to the Anglican tradition. She is currently the Assistant Priest at St Jude’s Anglican Church at Brighton. Jo is a keen walker.
