Formation Programme 2015-16

Theology Study Sessions

Theology Study Sessions take place monthly and should be undertaken seriously as an extension of your academic study. The  Formation Programme has been devised and is led by Fr Peter Anthony. In the first part of each session (90 minutes), there is a study session exploring a particular theme, as listed below.  There will normally be some preparatory reading to do to inform the discussion.

Student-Led Presentations

In the second part of each session (30 minutes) students will lead a discussion, comprising a 15-minute talk and 15 minutes of discussion, although the format can be flexible and you are encouraged to be imaginative.  Please choose a book or subject area that you have been studying recently, and that has particularly interested you.

  • Teach us something about it, so that we understand what it is about
  • Inspire us with a sense of what is important about it and why
  • Help us to discuss the issues it raises; by giving questions or other resources for discussion
