Pastoral Theology is typically understood as a course for preparation for the priesthood, but in reality is a course for laity taking on “Pastoral Roles.” A presentation of classical ancient texts such as On the Priesthood by St. John Chrysostom & St. Cyril of Alexandria and On the Pastoral Rule by Gregory the Great will provide students with a strong foundation on which they can build their pastoral care for their respective congregations. Students will also explore the field of “Spiritual Direction” and guidance for practical purposes for service to parishioners who entrust them with such a role.
This course is offered only in the Spring 3 module (March-April, 2020).
