Intellectual and Spiritual Formation
Through a curriculum of intellectual and spiritual formation, the Theology Department seeks to prepare graduates to celebrate, proclaim, and live the Good News of Jesus Christ. Students will build on a foundation of critical and prayerful engagement with Sacred Scripture, the rich heritage of Catholic Tradition along with an appreciation for other religious traditions, and the Gospel mandates of peace, justice, and service, especially to the marginalized. Students will be prepared to continue their faith journeys with a spirituality that appreciates and integrates the virtues of head, heart, and hand. The department aims to form students into graduates who, like Mary, can offer themselves -- mind, body, and spirit -- in response to God's gracious gift of Jesus Christ.
