Serviam is a groundbreaking initiative created by the diocese to offer free and comprehensive learning for laity and clergy. Providing them with the tools they need to grow and lead our churches. You may have already benefited from some of our courses.
We are ready to take this to the next level. After two years of research and development we are partnering with Villanova University and Catholic Faith Technologies to create a platform that offers everything from one-off workshops, a library of resource materials, multi-module courses and even accredited certification and degree programs (at half normal tuition).
By offering flexible learning formats and through fostering collaboration, Serviam will empower our churches in adapting to new realities and embracing emerging models of church life. It is truly a tool that will transform our diocese in the name of Jesus Christ.
As we develop the full platform, we will continue to offer to create and add videos, training and resources for vestries, theological and spiritual reflection and more. They will be announced and promoted as they are scheduled. Stay tuned for more.
The Rt. Rev. Daniel G. P. Gutiérrez
XVI Bishop of The Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania
