An ICSST certificate attests to the completion of a substantial and coherent program of learning, involving 18 to 24 credits in a given area of study, without completion of all the requirements for a degree program. A certificate program allows some students to finish a discrete program of learning and obtain a credential for it. Other students may use a certificate program as a way of “testing the waters” prior to and/or en route to completion of a degree program. A certificate can be earned concurrently with a degree. ICSST offers a certificate in Catholic Evangelization and a certificate in Christian Spirituality.
The three-year Certificate Program in Catholic Evangelization is offered in collaboration with The Evangelization Office at St. Paul Inside the Walls, Madison, NJ. Students take courses in a wide range of theological disciplines and participate in retreats and workshops, learning their spiritual gifts, deepening their faith, and growing as a small group community of faith.
Students must meet the same requirements as those for the M.A. in Pastoral Ministry program, except that the GRE/MAT and psychological testing are not required.
Students are required to participate in four Saturday sessions per year designed to help them to discern and deepen their spiritual gifts, while forming small group communities of faith and prayer. The sessions allow students to deepen their faith with one another, as they learn and hone skills of spiritual leadership and Catholic evangelization.
