Catholic Evangelization

 This innovative and inspiring program is offered off-site in collaboration with St. Paul Inside the Walls Evangelization Center in Madison, N.J. Here, students are encouraged and prepared to heed the words of Pope Francis: "I want the Church to go out to the streets! … The parishes, the schools, the institutions are made for going out."

Students in this three-year certificate program take courses in a wide range of theological disciplines and participate in retreats and workshops, learning their spiritual gifts, deepening their faith, and growing as a small group community of faith.

If taken for credit, courses in this program may be applied toward an M.A. in Theology.
