The goal at St. John’s is the conversion of mind and heart. We help the student understand academic theology as a central focus for the formation of the Christian community. We want every student to grow deeper in understanding the word of God — and then to celebrate that word through sacramental ministry.
St. John’s provides graduate level theological education in preparation for ministry. Our primary degree, for ordination candidates only, is the Master of Divinity, which follows a curriculum prescribed by the American Bishops in their Program for Priestly Formation, 4th ed. St. John’s also offers a complete pre-theology program and an M.A. degree. Qualified lay candidates may be admitted to the M.A. program.
