Beginner and Intermediate Levels
The goal of this program is to provide students with the language skills they require for effective ministry, timed so as to enhance their ability to practice the language in pastoral settings through their Pastoral Formation assignments. The course will include more opportunity for conversation as well as recitation of the liturgical rites in the respective language. Pastoral placements where Spanish, Portuguese, or French ministry represents a significant segment of those ministered to will be recommended. This fusion of both classroom and practical usage will provide a more meaningful and beneficial experience to seminarians as they prepare to serve the Church following Ordination. This course earns 1 credit per semester.
