Maryvale: new MA in Marriage and the Family

The Maryvale Institute has recently introduced a new MA in Marriage and Family. Now don't be silly - they are not saying you need an MA to get married! The course is for priests, religious, teachers and others involved in pastoral ministry related to marriage and the family. The aims are:
  • to deepen student knowledge and understanding of the Catholic vision for marriage and family particularly as informed by the teaching of Pope John Paul II;
  • to enable students to reflect critically on how to apply this knowledge and understanding in response to the needs and enrichment of marriage and family life within their own vocational and professional settings.
The list of modules looks good as well. There is more information at the link above.

There is also a short report on Stephen Milne's blog Witness to Love which is another new addition to the blogroll.
