As part of the STM’s mission to serve the community and the Church, our Continuing Education programs provide access to world-class theological and pastoral scholarship, online and on campus, for ministers and others who seek to deepen their engagement with the Catholic faith.
Encore is a free, curated collection of digital resources covering a range of topics. This archive includes podcasts and videos of our on-campus events, as well as Encore Access—a guide to using selected videos for discussion with members of a faith community. Through Encore, we make the richness of STM excellence available to an even wider audience.
Investigate how we might stay on the inner road while embracing life in the 21st Century. Join us as we discuss aspects of inner exploration: change as a dynamic of our lives; the quest for balance and solitude in a noisy demanding world; and the power of gratitude in motivating our spiritual growth.
Take an opportunity to read and reflect on the Sunday readings during the first five weeks of Lent. You will be provided with links to reflections on the Lectionary readings (Cycle A), by a selection of commentators. Each week there will be a discussion forum so that course participants can share and discuss their insights about the Sunday readings.
This course explores the Black Catholic Christian experience in the United States. The course moves from the experience of enslaved believers to the current experience of Black Catholics who are living through the Black Lives Matter movement as well as the COVID-19 pandemic. We find hope in the prophetic voices of US Black Catholics on the road to sainthood, particularly Sr. Thea Bowman. This course aims to bring light to the challenges and prejudices faced by Black Catholics, past and present, as well as the deep faith, prayer, and community that they bring to the global Church.
