Adult Courses

Adult Education in Theology

St. Thomas Aquinas High School offers a program of evening adult education classes in theology.  The purpose of this program is to provide the Seacoast Region opportunities for continuing education in the Catholic Faith.  The courses will be aimed at those who are interested in deepening their understanding of their faith, Scripture and the Church.  It may also be of interest to Catechists who would like to deepen their understanding of the issues they teach to children, adolescents, or adults in the R.C.I.A.  Course offerings will depend upon interest.
