Uniting Mission & Education (UME) congratulates our United Theological College Academic Dean, Gerard Moore, who has been promoted by Charles Sturt University to the rank of Full Professor.
Following a comprehensive process, the university has conferred the professorship upon Gerard in light of his national and international standing in research and scholarship, and his contribution nationally to educational and theological leadership.

Holding a doctorate in theology from the Catholic University of America, Washington DC, Gerard has published extensively, been a consultant to the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL), and contributed to a number of national liturgical bodies, both ecumenical and within the Roman Catholic tradition, including the Australian Consultation on Liturgy (ACOL).
