Areas of study will include, but are not limited to: Scripture, Preaching, Catechesis, Pastoral Activity, History, Fundamental Theology, Dogmatic Theology, Moral Theology, Spirituality, Liturgy, Canon Law, Social Justice, and Aboriginal Issues. Academic learning will be accompanied with pastoral experience.
