Agnes Cunningham, SSCM, is a prolific writer and has traveled the world conducting workshops, retreats, study days, and consultations.
She was one of the first female theologians to teach at Mundelein Seminary, the major seminary of the Archdiocese of Chicago. She earned BA degrees in church music (University of Toronto) and English (St. Louis University), an MA in theology (Marquette), and was the first woman to obtain a doctorate in sacred theology from Facultés Catholiques, Lyon, France.
She is also the recipient of several honorary doctorates and in 2000, the Catholic Theological Society of America gave her its highest honor--the John Courtney Murray Medal for her "distinguished and enduring contributions to theology."
Sister Agnes now lives in Champaign, Illinois where she translates documents for her congregation and continues to write.
