On Saturday, 28th April 2018, the first group of adult learners – 22 people in all – embarked on the first cycle of the new Certificate in Christian Studies in the United Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne and Ross. The Certificate (an NQF level 7 course) is being run in partnership with Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth.
The participants gathered from all parts of the Dioceses at Northridge House Education and Research Centre at Saint Luke’s Charity, Cork, for the launch by the Bishop, the Right Reverend Dr Paul Colton. The first module – Christian Liturgy: Worship and the people of God – is being led by the Dean of Leighlin, the Very Reverend Tom Gordon. Also present today were some of the coordinating group and module leaders of future modules: Dr Tim Jackson, the Reverend Robert Ferris, Dr Daniel Nuzum, the Reverend Peter Rutherford, and Archdeacon Adrian Wilkinson.
