  • The Master of Arts in Transforming Spirituality program provides an amazing opportunity for both personal & professional growth.

    Dannette Allen, MATS Class of 2010
  • The ecumenical nature of the school challenged me as a Roman Catholic and deepened my experience as a Christian. Classroom discussions & friendships developed with members of other ecclesial communities gave me a new appreciation for the breadth, depth and diverse beauty of the Body of Christ. At the same time, I came to a new appreciation for the particular riches of my own Roman Catholicism.
