Dr. Brook Herbert converted to the Catholic Church over 17 years ago as a consequence of reading the Fathers of the Church. It was there that the radiance of the Catholic faith began to work its glorious wonder. 

She received degrees in Education and English Literature at the University of British Columbia in 1970. From there she attended Regent College, where she received her Diploma in Theological Studies, followed by a Master's in Theological Studies, majoring in Spiritual Theology. Ultimately she received her degree as Doctor of Theology from the University of South Africa at Pretoria in the year 2000. Her doctoral dissertation was entitled "Resurrection of Beauty for a Post Modern Church."

Dr. Herbert has taught at Catholic Pacific College for over a decade, offering courses in subjects including Beauty and the Sacred Arts, Ecclesiology, Theology of the Body, and Sacred Scripture. 

Dr. Herbert has published in St. Vladimir's Theological Journal and the Homiletic and Pastoral Review. She is currently researching a book which she hopes to publish, directing the laity to their dignity as men and women called to "participate in the Divine Nature."

In her spare time, Dr. H enjoys almost everything that is legal and/or holy and happifying.  She doesn't enjoy "I Love Lucy" or the "Honeymooners," but revels in "The Big Bang Theory," with a particular devotion to Sheldon's mother!

B.Ed. (Univ. of British Columbia); M.C.S. (Regent College, Van.); D.Th. (Univ. of South Africa). Dr. Herbert holds a Mandatum from the Archbishop of Vancouver to teach Catholic Theology.

Germain McKenzie is a Peruvian-Canadian theologian who holds a B.Th. and a MTS/M.Div. from the Pontifical School of Theology of Lima, Peru. He received a Ph.D. in Religion and Culture from the Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C.

He has lectured on topics related to Catholic Theology and the Social Teaching of the Church at different universities in Latin America and the United States. His current research interests include the contemporary conditions for belief in the West and new evangelization; the secular and post-secular debate; and the pre-conditions for a dialogue between theology and sociology. Broadly speaking, his theoretical approach wants to bridge theology and the social sciences, with a focus on ethical issues.

He has worked as General Editor of the Latin American journal Revista VE, where he has published some peer-reviewed articles on social ethics: “Medellin: 30 Years After” and “John Paul II’s Reconciliation Proposal for Latin America.” He has also conducted several interviews and written numerous reviews for the same journal. Forthcoming publications by Dr. McKenzie are “Buddhism in Peru,” which is an entry in the Handbook of Latin American Religions, and Taylorean Sociology. Charles Taylor’s View of Secularization in Comparison, a book based on McKenzie's doctoral dissertation, is to be published by Springer.

Dr. McKenzie is an activist for Catholic-inspired social change in Latin America. He has served poor communities in the shanty towns of Lima, Peru, for more than 10 years. As a member of the Board of Solidarity Experiences Abroad, a Canadian Non-for-Profit that organizes solidarity trips for Canadian university students travelling to Latin America and Africa, he has collaborated with grass-roots organizations to promote development and social justice.

Dr. Andrew Kaethler grew up in the Lower Mainland, but spent the last eight years living in Europe. He received a B.A. in Christianity and Culture from TWU as well as an M.A. in Religion, Culture, and Ethics. His M.A. thesis, which was published, was titled The Synthesis of Athens and Jerusalem: George Grant’s Defense Against Modernity. Following his MA, Andrew spent a year running (actually sanding, spraying, and brushing) his own painting company before his wife fortunately encouraged him to pursue teaching. Surprisingly, this led Andrew and his family to Eastern Europe, Lithuania to be precise. Here at LCC International University, Andrew taught philosophy, theology, and cross-listed English/theology courses for four years and during this time discovered his love and passion for teaching. After four years and two additional children he moved to St Andrews, Scotland, where he spent four years working on a Ph.D. in systematic theology at the University of St Andrews. The Ph.D. thesis, titled Eschatology and Personhood: Alexander Schmemann and Joseph Ratzinger in Dialogue, was completed in Spring 2015. Although he did not golf in Scotland, he did participate in the consumption of haggis, drank a few drams of whiskey, and danced at the odd Ceilidh. It was in Scotland, the land of the fiery reformer John Knox, that Andrew and his family were received into the Catholic Church, a ‘conversion’ process that began at TWU almost twenty years earlier.    

Publications include “The (Un)Bounded Peculiarity of Death: The Relational Implication of Temporality in Alexander Schmemann and Joseph Ratzinger” in Modern Theology; “‘I Become a Thousand Men and yet Remain Myself’: Self-Love in Joseph Ratzinger and Georges Bernanos” in Logos: A Journal of Catholic Thought and Culture; “Freedom in Relationship: Joseph Ratzinger and Alexander Schmemann in Dialogue” in New Blackfriars; and “Eucharistic Anthropology: Alexander Schmemann’s Conception of Beings in Time” in The Resounding Soul: Reflections on the Metaphysics and Vivacity of the Human Person

If his gaggle of geese - aka his five children - were not so cute and time consuming, his hobbies would include guitar, tennis, cross-fit (a really wimpy version of it), water skiing, and eating pasta in Italy. In the very little spare time he has - the 30 minutes before he goes to sleep - he loves to immerse himself in good literature; his favourite novelists include Graham Greene, David Adams Richards, John Steinbeck, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Robertson Davies.
