Opportunities are available for wives and families of deacons and deacon candidates to deepen their faith and grow in their relationship with Christ and His church, so that they may be prepared to live the Gospel and share it in their homes, parishes and communities.
Through Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology, wives may enroll in a Masters of Arts in Theology or Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry program. They also may choose one of two certificate programs: Christian Spirituality and Catholic Evangelization.
In addition to graduate coursework, the Center for Diaconal Formation strives to spiritually enrich the lives of the diaconal family through offerings of workshops, lectures, presentations, days of reflection and retreats.
Christian Spirituality Certificate: Wives of deacons and deacon candidates are invited to journey together as a cohort in this program, which provides academic preparation in spirituality and a foundation for ministry, as well as opportunities for personal spiritual development.
