Consider the St. Benedict School for Ministry

Formation for Ministry in the Anglican Benedictine Tradition
834cd701-6176-4602-b48a-ab40b70c062dSt. Benedict School for Ministry is an missional Anglican seminary in the Benedictine tradition, founded in October 2013, serving the Diocese of Quincy in the Anglican Church in North America to provide training for those pursuing vocations in the Church as well as continuing education for clergy and lay leaders. It is an innovative seminary, providing training and spiritual formation for ministry through a combination of online courses, residential seminars and focused retreats. Its mission is to be a global center for Christian formation, producing outstanding clergy and lay leaders who can plant, renew, and grow churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ.

St. Benedict School for Ministry will prepare graduates for ordained and lay ministries in the Church. They currently offer three programs of study, as well as individual courses for continuing education and personal spiritual enrichment.

  • Certificate in Diaconal Studies/Certificate in Christian Studies
  • Diploma in Anglican Studies
  • Licentiate in Theology

Upcoming Course:
April 2015
DM2 – Theory and Practice of Ministry (Pastoral Care and Parish Ministry for Deacons)
July 2015
Liturgics Workshop – in person, Peoria, Illinois

Each course is the equivalent of three credit hours and requires a minimum of thirty “contact hours” of instruction. Course will be designed so that the contact hours can be accomplished through online instruction, residential weeks or weekends, or a combination of online and residential instruction. There will also be residential “formation retreats” offered at least once a year.

For more information or to register for either of these courses, please contact The Very Rev. Shawn Doubet, at The Cathedral Church of St. Andrew. Phone: 815-878-3365 or e-mail: Click the link to view the website.
