Fr. Peter Ryan, S.J. Was A Former Board Member Of The Cardinal Newman Society

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have named Fr. Peter Ryan, S.J., as executive director for the secretariat of doctrine and canonical affairs. The announcement was made May 29. Fr. Ryan will assume the responsibilities in August. Fr. Ryan is a former member of The Cardinal Newman Society's board of directors. He is replacing Fr. Thomas Weinandy, who is retiring. Fr. Ryan is a member of the Maryland province of the Society of Jesus, and has been director of spiritual formation at Kenrick-Glennon Seminary. In 2011, the National Catholic Reporter asserted that a Theological Studies article defending the prohibition of divorce and remarriage, written by Fr. Peter Ryan and Dr. Germain Grisez, was "unedited" and did not undergo the "normal peer review" process. The Vatican asked that the article be published in the journal.
