Fall 2023 and Winter 2024 Courses

Emmanuel and St. Chad College and the WECAN group have developed a Ministry Preparation program that is relevant to the various Anglican contexts in Western Canada. The local Diocesan Ministry Schools make substantial contributions to the program by offering courses as mapped out in the ESC-WECAN Licentiate in Theology handbook. Whether you are feeling called to do more formal ministry or are drawn to take certain courses, please contact the person named for the course or courses you are interested in doing. At the same time, let your Diocesan School Coordinator know your plans.
