Henry Omeike is a member of the Catholic Order of the Redemptorists from Nigeria and a fourth-year doctoral student in Theological and Social Ethics. His research interests lie in Fundamental moral theology, Economic/business ethics, Catholic social thought, Bioethics/medical ethics, virtue ethics, Theological anthropology, African economic development and ethics, Christianity’s engagement with modernity and racial justice. He received his Master of Art degree in Philosophy in 2001 from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria.  He earned an M.A. degree in theology from the Dominican Institute of Philosophy and Theology, Ibadan, Nigeria and a Th.M (Theological Masters) from Saint John’s School of Theology, Collegeville, Minnesota.  Before coming to Fordham, Henry taught part time at SS Peter and Paul Major Seminary in Nigeria, specializing in “Eucharist” and “Christology.” He is the founder/coordinator of Truelife Consult of Nigeria (TLK), an organization that trains a broad spectrum of people, especially youth, on self-improvement through workshops on leadership, physical as well as emotional health. Henry recalls arriving in the United States, in Minnesota, in early January, to an atrocious winter weather that almost forced him to abandon his theological studies. Henry is an avid soccer player, who also enjoys learning different languages, writing stories, and savoring the sight and sound of his Little Italy neighborhood as well as New York City.
