Adult Faith Formation

Enrich your faith life. Embrace the call to discipleship. 

“This course gave me an appreciation for the church we have today by reading the documents of the fathers of the church. I now understand how they influence us still.”

- Mary Ziolkowski, ANT ‘12

The Adult Faith Formation program at the Neuhoff School of Ministry provides courses, lectures, and workshops on various topics, ranging from philosophy and theology to Scripture, church history, canon law, saints, and more. Some previous course topics include Resurrection from the Dead, Gospel of John, Mariology, Evangelization and Catechesis, and the Catholic Perspective on Human Destiny.

The program incorporates adult learning styles, including discussions, presentations by experts, reflection papers, and reading assignments. The program offerings vary in length and format depending on the time of year and subject of the course, lecture, or workshop, making this the most focused program the Neuhoff School of Ministry offers for those seeking to learn more about their faith.

Theology of the Body

The University of Dallas' Neuhoff School of Ministry offers a one year online certificate course called Foundations on Theology of the Body: An Invitation to Love. The course involves a close reading of St. John Paul II's catechesis on human love in relation to various pastoral issues and the application in ministry of the Theology of the Body.

Community Education Program

Community Education allows students to take graduate courses in the Neuhoff School of Ministry for continuing education purposes. By auditing the courses, Community Education students can read the course materials and participate in the discussions and lectures without completing the written assignments or other course deliverables. This program will also benefit the lay minister who desires to pursue a particular area of interest.
