  • Sr. Sara Butler, a member of the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity, who teaches dogmatic theology at the New York Archdiocese's St. Joseph's Seminary in Yonkers.

  • Nigerian Fr. Peter Damian Akpunonu, a professor of biblical exegesis at the University of St. Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary in Chicago.

  • British Msgr. Paul McPartlan, a professor of systematic theology and ecumenism at The Catholic University of America in Washington.

In 2004 Butler and Barbara Hallensleben, a German laywoman who teaches dogmatic theology at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, became the first women named to the International Theological Commission. Hallensleben also was appointed to a second term July 25.

The commission also has one layman as a member: Johannes Reiter, a professor of moral theology at the University of Mainz, Germany, who also was appointed to a new term.
