Theological Academic Study

‘Information leads to formation, which leads to transformation’ Tom Groome

The academic study of scripture, theology, spirituality and pastoral leadership deepens the candidates understanding and knowledge of our Catholic tradition.  This is essential for those in pastoral leadership, with its complexity of issues and challenges.

The course of study consists of 18 papers from The Catholic Institute of Aotearoa New Zealand, comprising of:

  • New Zealand Certificate in Christian Studies – Christian Ministry
  • New Zealand Diploma in Christian Studies – Christian Leadership (NZ Certificate in Christian Studies is a pre-requisite)
