The University of Mary’s Certificate in Prayer and Spiritual Direction will hone your skills in leading people deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ not merely by enriching your knowledge and skills but by bringing you as a spiritual director deeper into your own friendship and communion with the Triune God. Today, the Church and world are in real need of people enjoying communion with the Holy Trinity and attuned to the leading of the Holy Spirit. This certificate can be completed with the Marriage & Family Certificate and Sacred Scripture Certificate in partial fulfillment of the Applied Catholic Theology, M.A.
Alternatively, students who do not wish to pursue a full master’s degree may instead choose to pursue a non-degree certificate program. This program will result in the award of a graduate certificate on the student’s official transcript. Please note: this certificate program is not eligible for Title IV funding, and therefore students will not be able to apply federal financial aid funds toward the completion of this certificate program if not completed as part of the full MA degree.
