Over 20 grad students earn Master’s degrees from The Saint Paul Seminary

Over 20 graduate lay students received their Master’s degrees from The Saint Paul Seminary this year.

Twenty-three lay students and women religious at The Saint Paul Seminary are celebrating reception of their Master’s degrees this school year. Some of them will go on to formal leadership positions within the Church. Others will go back to their families and secular jobs with newfound wisdom and skills to lead those in their communities toward Christ.

Students in the seminary’s Master of Arts in Pastoral Leadership and Master of Arts in Theology program dive deep into theology and its implications for leadership and mission. Both programs build off the “four dimensions” used in priestly formation (the same ones by which future priests are guided during their time in seminary): human, intellectual, spiritual and pastoral.

The seminary’s Masters graduates took part in a special Mass and brunch May 21 ahead of the University of St. Thomas’ commencement ceremonies. Their names and degrees are listed below (note: some students will formally complete their studies this summer):
