Ge’ez is a Semitic language that was once one of the main languages in Eritrea and Ethiopia. With the decline of the Askumites in the 13th-14th centuries, Ge’ez ceased to be used in everyday communication but has lived on in the readings and the liturgical life of the Church. Today, learning Ge’ez is the key to accessing the spiritual treasures of the Eritrean-Ethiopian liturgical world and is a necessary skill for those who want to immerse yourself in this spiritual life.
The program includes Geez and Zema training for sacramental and liturgical services, and eight additional modules to be delivered over the course of two years.
Year 1: Dogmatic Theology, Church History I, Bible Study, Patrology.
Year 2: Church History II, Canon Law and Church Administration, Ecclesiology, Homiletics.
Those who participate in the program will acquire training and develop knowledge that will enable them to effectively carry out diaconal and liturgical service in the Church.
