Lectures, Workshops & Retreats

Throughout the semester and during the summer months, the Seminary offers lectures, workshops and retreats that help people gain ministry-related skills on the personal and communal level.  Workshops and seminars are thematic or topical and are a way to strengthen the students' academic and spiritual learning while at Christ the King Seminary.  In addition, workshops delve deeper into many areas and topics than may be done in the academic classroom.
