“I immediately felt at home at St. Mark’s. Like King’s, St. Mark’s offers ‘the best of both worlds’: the opportunity to earn a university degree within a Catholic setting.”
Why St. Mark’s?
“I feel called to youth ministry in a deeper, more catechetical way. I chose to pursue an MRE at Saint Mark’s College because it reminds me of King’s University College, where I graduated with an Honours Specialization in Catholic Studies. I immediately felt at home at Saint Mark’s. Like King’s, Saint Mark’s offers ‘the best of both worlds’: the opportunity to earn a university degree within a Catholic setting. I also greatly appreciated the technological capabilities of St. Mark’s College, which allowed me to Skype into lectures from Yellowknife, NT, where I was serving the church of the North.
Although I have worked in various capacities in youth ministry for over six years, September 2014 marked the beginning of my pursuit to study the Catholic faith with the intention of someday teaching within either a high school or post-secondary setting. My first month of studies in the MRE program at Saint Mark’s challenged me as most of my peers were already working in the education field. However, this was also a highlight of the program, as their perspectives allowed me to learn from their experience, and also to approach my studies with a more catechetical perspective in mind.”
