You can explore and deepen your understanding of the Catholic faith with our Certificate in Catholic Theology program!

Ask our admissions team about your many options!
Not sure where God is calling you? That's completely normal! Like Samuel in the Old Testament, you may say "Lord, here I am!" yet need to pray and discern more before clearly hearing what God wants. We invite you to "come and see" what the Lord may have ahead for you. Take a course or two as an unclassified student, whether at the seminary or at one of our convenient parish satellite locations or online.
