We are delighted to announce that we are offering a new course which aims to equip those involved in ministry in the Church with the knowledge and skills they need to be effective pastors, counsellors and helpers. The course is designed for priests, deacons and other professionals whose work involves helping and supporting people.
This two-year course is divided into several parts. The first, titled Theological Anthropology (offered Autumn 2020), offers an insight into the physical, theological and philosophical nature of human beings and describes the ways in which the Church Fathers described the human being in terms of Christology, creation and deification. In the second part, Liturgical Theology and Philanthropy (Spring 2021) we explore firstly, the ways in which the Liturgy of the Church reveals an underlying ordo and how we can work with that ordo in practical ways, and secondly the ways in which the virtues facilitate the reconciliation of the human being and of human communities. More information about the academic year 2021/2022 will be provided later.
We have a limited number of places so please apply as soon as possible.
