Ana María Pineda, R.S.M.

Associate Professor

Sr. Pineda was born in San Salvador, El Salvador. She was a candidate for the D.Min. degree at the Jesuit School of Theology at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley from 1979-1985, and then went to the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago for an M.A. in Theology (1987). Five years later, she completed an S.T.D. in Pastoral Theology from the Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca, Spain, where her dissertation examined the Hispanic permanent diaconate in the United States.
