Community Education

Do you have a desire to learn about theological and ministerial topics at a graduate level but don't want to pursue a graduate degree?

Community Education allows students to take graduate courses in the Neuhoff School of Ministry for continuing education purposes.  At the discretion of a diocese, parish or school, this program may be used as an option for the catechist or teacher that needs to complete continuing education courses. This program will also benefit the lay minister who desires to pursue a particular area of interest.  

Community Education students will read course materials and participate in discussions and lectures without having to complete written assignments.  For this reason no credit is awarded for these courses. Please note that written permission from the instructor must be granted before a student is allowed to participate in the courses offered.

For more information, please contact us at or 972-721-4118.
