St. Bernard’s School of Theology & Ministry Offerings

Dear Friends,

Bishop Salvatore R. Matano, anticipating the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the foundation of the Diocese of Rochester has declared 2017-2018 the “Year of the Eucharist.”
Already one hundred and twenty-five years old, St. Bernard’s will host a variety of programs and courses to help Catholics understand the inestimable value of our life as a Eucharistic people. Please look through this brochure for the four different programs that St. Bernard’s has to offer during the “Year of the Eucharist.”

Our graduate school will host a graduate level course (for both audit and credit possibilities) for those who wish to explore the beauty of the Eucharist from an in-depth historical and theological perspective,

Designed for Parish Ministers and interested volunteers, the Certificate Program will host a four-week course aimed at the practical and theological under-standing of the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation, 

The annual Otto A. Shults Lecture on Catholic Spirituality will be held on Wednesday December 6th at 4:30 PM (with a light reception to follow). This year’s speaker will be the Right Reverend Gerard D’Souza, 6th Abbot of the Abbey of the Genesee,

And finally, available to parishes and faith communities throughout the Diocese of Rochester for adult faith formation and enrichment, St. Bernard’s will be “On The Road” with lectures/discussions led by local academic and Church leaders sharing in-sights into the beauty of the Eucharist.

Registration for all of these programs is required.

Additional information can be found here or on our website: www.stbernards.edu.

Yours in Christ,

 

Fr. George Heyman
