Institute for Pastoral Theology LogoCredo Advisory Board member Larry Feingold is one of the instructors for Ave Maria University’s Masters in Pastoral Theology program here in St. Louis. You can get a taste of what the program has to offer during their “Open Class Weekend” coming on November 11th, 12th, and 13th.

You can think of Pastoral Theology as something like Applied Theology. The program is meant for anyone whose duties include religious education: DREs, religion teachers, deacons, homeschoolers and parents generally, and leaders of lay apostolates will especially benefit. The program is also meant to be one of personal formation and calls students to a personal holiness as emphasized by Pope John Paul II in Christifidelis Laici and is quite appropriate for anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the rational basis for The Faith.

The schedule is:

Friday Nov. 11 7-10pm and Sat Nov. 12 8-11am

Old Testament I: Ancient Israel and the Catholic Faith

Saturday Nov. 12 12:30-7pm
John Paul II: Encyclicals on God’s Mercy and on the Holy Spirit; Suffering in God’s Plan of Love

Sunday Nov. 13 9am-4pm
Foundations of Catholic Spirituality: Suffering and Sanctification; Discerning One’s Vocation

The classes will be held in the St. Louis Room at the Cardinal Rigali Center.

Reserve your seat by e-mailing the registrar or by calling 866-866-1100.

  1. I would like more information on the Masters of Theology program offered in St. Louis. Please e-mail me a enrollment information and contact name and phone number of someone I can talk to about enrolling in the program. My goal is to become a certified Chaplain.
