Project Information

  • Initiative: Pathways for Tomorrow Phase 2
  • Project Title: Pathway to Ministry
  • Project Description: Vocations to the Catholic priesthood in Canada have suffered in recent decades. Little empirical research has been done to understand the underlining causes for this turn, nor have coordinated strategies emerged within the context of the Canadian Church. To tackle this urgent problem, Newman Theological College has launched a three-pronged strategy: (1) to attract young candidates to leadership roles, (2) to strengthen leaders that serve Catholic youth, and (3) to build pathways among existing institutions that minister to youth. Our work is inspired by the legacy of Pope Benedict XVI and grounded in original and recent research into vocations.

  • Project Start Date: 22-Jan-01
