Jerilyn Felton Published in International Magazine

Dr. Jerilyn Felton, Marylhurst alum, published an article titled Mirror Image: Ministry with Dogs Rather Than to Them in the summer 2014 issue of The Ark, the Journal of Catholic Concern for Animals.

Dr. Felton's Four-Footed Ministers pastoral care program was the result of a nine-month research project to develop a safe, effective and repeatable structure for using dogs to facilitate spiritual and pastoral care interventions.

Catholic Concern for Animals is an international organization, based out of the United Kingdom, that supports various efforts around the world to foster action among Catholics worldwide with regard to the ethical treatment of animals, wild and domestic.

Jerilyn Felton earned two master's degrees from Marylhurst University: MA in Interdisciplinary Studies and MA in Applied Theology. In 2008, she published a book titled Four-Footed Ministers: Their Theology of Presence.
