Beginning this summer, Dr. Raymond N. MacKenzie , professor in the Department of English, will serve as editor of LOGOS. A faculty member at St. Thomas since 1989, he teaches a graduate course in the Catholic novel for the CSMA program, in which students discuss works by authors ranging from Dostoevsky to Flannery O’Connor. In English, his favorite classes are those in Shakespeare, Milton, and Greek and Roman classics in translation.

Welcome Brian Sattler Brian Sattler is the former executive vice president of Business Services, general counsel and secretary at The Schwan’s Company. Sattler was employed at Schwan’s for 23 years and was promoted numerous times during his tenure. In his most recent position, he led all aspects of mergers and acquisitions. Sattler oversaw strategy, legal, compliance, food safety and quality, customer experience, manufacturing, plant sanitation, safety, corporate ethics, corporate records, and government and community affairs. He also handled insurance procurement, claims and litigation. Sattler served as board secretary with Schwan’s for nearly 20 years. Sattler and his wife, Andrea, have been married for 31 years. Their three children – Grant, Austin and Gretchen – all graduated from St. Thomas.

“Ray is a talented editor and brings years of experience to his new role as editor of LOGOS,” says Dr. Michael Naughton. “His familiarity with our graduate program and long friendships with our faculty make this a natural transition for him and for us. We look forward to welcoming Ray to Sitzmann Hall in June.”

In January, Catholic Studies welcomed Kathryn (Katy) Wehr as the new managing editor of LOGOS, an ideal fit as she loves being at the intersection of the arts, the intellectual life and ministry. Her academic specialty is the religious drama of Dorothy L. Sayers; she has edited a Wade Annotated Edition of Sayers’ The Man Born to be King , forthcoming January 2023.

Wehr has worked in parish faith formation, taught undergraduate theology, and is a songwriter, including a recent album, “And All the Marys,” exploring the stories of women in the Gospels. “I’ve known Katy for several years, and I can say that she is not just another accomplished person, but a delight to be around,” said LOGOS Editor David Deavel. “Katy is a superb writer and editor, and she is already a valuable part of the LOGOS team.”
