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.
Explore the joys, opportunities, and responsibilities of friendship, and discover how our relationships point to our friendship with the God who is love, and who loved us first.
In the Spring 2018 issue of C21 Resources, “The Gift of Friendship,” guest editor Timothy Hanchin selects a collection of essay that assists us in deepening our understanding of friendship and connecting our friendships with each other to friendship with God.
Does the Gospel of Christ bear fruit in your life? How about in your church?
In Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis calls Catholic Christians to ongoing conversion, to bring the joy of Christian discipleship out into the world. It’s a call to become a Church of open-doors and invitation, reaching out to the margins bringing hope, life, and rejoicing to all. In this course, discover how sharing the joy of the Gospel is the very purpose of Christian life. Explore the meaning of “New Evangelization,” and key approaches turning your parish into a vibrant evangelizing community. Together we’ll study Pope Francis’s document and reflect on how to continue to bring the Gospel joy into the 21st century world.
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.
