The Institute operates at the interface between the academic world and the pastoral reality on the ground in our parishes and local communities. Thus it is an academic Institution with a missionary role. The Institute seeks to provide a sound theological foundation to pastoral practice by teaching, researching and reflecting on examples of best practise. Pastoral Ministry needs to be informed and animated by sound theology.
To this end we provide accredited and non-accredited programmes and courses for those who are involved in ministry and leadership.
