Saint Patrick’s College Maynooth, have announced two new programmes from September 2019. These are the ‘Higher Diploma in Healthcare Chaplaincy’ and the ‘Postgraduate Diploma in Christian Communications and Media Practice’ (in association with Kairos).
The Pontifical University has a long tradition of preparing candidates for both lay and ordained ministry leadership in the Church. One of the primary goals of the Pastoral Theology department is to help people discern a call to ministry, and to train them to the highest standards of formation. Dr Aoife McGrath, Director of the Chaplaincy course said: “We see the need for – and the importance of providing – high quality pastoral care in faith communities.”
