Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology, in collaboration with
St. Paul Inside the Walls, Madison, NJ, is proud to offer a Certificate
in Catholic Evangelization (CCE), and is now accepting applications for
its 2014-2017 cohort.
This unique program seeks to equip Catholics to bring the Good News
of Jesus Christ to their homes, parishes and local communities. This
corresponds with the wishes of Pope Francis, who emphasizes: "I want
the Church to go out to the streets! I want us to resist everything
worldly, everything static, everything comfortable, everything to do
with clericalism, everything that might make us closed in on ourselves.
The parishes, the schools, the institutions are made for going out."
The Certificate program offers two track options: non-credit bearing
courses, or 18 credits in graduate courses through the School of
Theology. These 18 credits may be applied toward a Master of Arts in
Courses include Biblical Call Narratives, Catholic Evangelization, Evangelizing Church, The Parables of Jesus, Practical Evangelization, and Prayer, Discipleship and Community. Classes meet on Tuesday evenings at St. Paul Inside the Walls, Madison, and include one Saturday session per year.
Jean Pankow, a 2014 CCE graduate from Cedar Knolls, NJ, said, "The
CCE program exceeded my expectations. The scope of knowledge shared was
impressive and of tremendous value. From gaining greater understanding
of the theological and scriptural foundations of evangelization, to
navigating the practical application of principles at the parish level,
this program served as a springboard for advancing the mission of
evangelization throughout our diocese and beyond."
