Moni McIntyre

Age: 56

Residence: Shadyside

Background: McIntyre has been the priest-in-charge at Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Homewood for the past four years and serves as a spiritual adviser to inmates in Western Pennsylvania prisons. She has made finding transportation for needy family members who wish to visit prisoners a top priority. She also serves as a captain in the Naval Reserve, where she gives monthly presentations on ethics issues. She has been an ethics consultant to the Navy surgeon general, a representative on the Department of Defense Ethics Committee, and has taught health care ethics to military personnel.

Noteworthy: McIntyre, an assistant professor in the social and public policy graduate program at Duquesne University, recently received the Eugene P. Beard award for leadership and ethics.

Quote: “I love this work. It’s my life. It’s who I am,” McIntyre said. “I’m grateful to all of my colleagues who nominated me for the award.”

Quote: “With research interests focused on health care ethics, feminist theology and ecological ethics, McIntyre has a solid reputation for scholarship, and she embodies the university’s commitment to moral and spiritual values,” said Duquesne University spokesman Richard Tourtellott.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
