Father Gadenz's research focuses on rhetorical analysis and use of Scripture in Paul's Letters.
Father Gadenz teaches various New Testament courses at Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology. In addition, he serves as a mentor on the Seminary's Formation Faculty. His research focuses on rhetorical analysis of Paul's Letters and the study of Paul's use of Scripture. He is also interested in the theological interpretation of Scripture, building bridges between exegetical study and the Church's theology and liturgy. His published doctoral dissertation examines Paul's ecclesiology in Romans 9-11, taking into account the Old Testament background of these chapters. Ordained in 1996, Father Gadenz is a priest of the Diocese of Trenton, and assists on weekends at Christ the King Parish in Long Branch, NJ.
