Saint Meinrad offers various opportunities for ongoing formation for deacons, including these workshops and certificate programs.
Dr. Rick Stern, Professor Emeritus of Homiletics, will offer Preaching as Listening, a homiletics workshop for deacons on January 10-12, 2020 on the Saint Meinrad campus.
Deacons seeking further formation for particular ministries in the Church can benefit from focused study in different areas, including Church history, ethics and moral theology, liturgical and sacramental theology, pastoral studies, Scripture, spirituality, and systematic theology.
This prepares you to offer this important ministry of accompaniment and guidance. As bridge figures in the Church, ordained deacons may be uniquely situated to become gifted directors.
Those involved in ministry can benefit from ministry supervision. This certificate program provides an opportunity for supervision with emphasis on preaching or pastoral care.
