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. Our priority is to create opportunities for people to participate in conversations on the faith tradition, contemporary theological issues, and ways to pray and serve in the 21st century. We offer an array of on-campus presentations, as well as online courses, certificate programs, videos, podcasts, and other resources for faith enrichment.
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.
Engaging in the ministry of spiritual direction has a way of expanding and deepening the mysteries of the spiritual life along with all the questions and challenges that arise. This course offers the opportunity to explore some of those questions and to further refine the skills to help others mine the riches of God's grace.
This course provides guided discussion around the Spring 2009 issue of C21 Resources, a publication of Boston College's Church in the 21st Century Center. This issue, entitled “Catholic Spirituality in Practice,” edited by Dr. Colleen Griffith, contains over 20 short, informative articles centered on various spiritual practices including the examen, praying with images, hospitality, and retreats, which are mostly reprinted from a variety of journals such as America, Religion East & West, and Weavings.
