People’s Catholic Seminary
A Journey to Spiritual Transformation
People’s Catholic Seminary, a seminary without walls, offers courses to inspire and educate individuals and groups who embrace a vision of church that is inclusive, liberating, empowering and equal.
Matthew Fox, one of the great visionaries of our times, proposes that contemporary seminaries move from knowledge factories to wisdom schools. PCP offers pathways to theological and ministerial competencies in a renewed priestly ministry that nurtures our baptismal call to live holy lives as midwives of grace in mystical, prophetic, and sacramental communities of equals.
People’s Catholic Seminary provides educational courses that appeal to mainstream Catholics and to those on the margins. Our courses foster an expanded worldview of our liberating God of compassion present in all and working for justice for all through systemic change. As co-creators and companions on a journey, we share the wisdom of God in our sacred texts, theologies, sacred practices, sacramental celebrations, and lived experiences.
Overview of Education Programs
People’s Catholic Seminary offers certificate programs for candidates on the journey to ordination and for supporters and community members. The certificate programs provide a comprehensive overview to theology, scripture, women studies and sacramental ministry. These programs are designed for the candidate preparing for priesthood who needs the basic courses to begin a pathway to ministry.
Spiritual Development and Enrichment
People’s Catholic Seminary provides a broad range of learning experiences and spirituality programs that are open to adult participants regardless of previous educational background. We recognize that women’s roles in the world religions are undergoing dramatic shifts and changes that have been inspired by a transformative consciousness of gender equality and justice.
