Erice spent a sabbatical in 2009 working on her original proposal that poetry is an authentic theological genre. At the conclusion of her sabbatical she presented a radical Christology in a cycle of poems at Waikato and Waiapu Cathedrals and in a retrospective at the Kinder Library. Erice continues to publish essays and poetry both at home and overseas, and the poem on Hermeneutics was read at the recent celebration of 20 years of Women's Ordination, held at the St James Institute in Sydney. Erice is currently Vicar of Otoumoetai, Tauranga.
