The Catholic Theological Institute of Singapore (CTIS) celebrated the graduation of 97 students on Feb 18 at the Church of St Teresa.
The ceremony, held in the auditorium, was presided over by Archbishop William Goh.
He took the opportunity during his keynote address to thank the students for their diligence, as well as the many benefactors who contribute to the growth of the academic community at CTIS. He exhorted students to live out what they learnt in their Christian vocations.
Out of the 97 students, 42 graduated with the Certificate in Theology while 55 graduated with the Diploma in Theology.
These students were participants of the respective programmes conducted in English and Mandarin.
CTIS programmes provide students with a foundational introduction to theological studies, which include Scripture studies, Church history, moral thought and philosophy.
CTIS was established in 2013 by Archbishop William Goh to cater to formation of the lay faithful. Since 2016, it has merged academic operations with the St Francis Xavier Major Seminary to include the training of candidates for the priesthood and the Religious life.
