A time for renewal

Are you looking for an opportunity to refresh your spirit, develop your ministry skills, and deepen your knowledge and faith? Catholic Theological Union is an ideal setting for such a sabbatical experience, one that prepares you to return to ministry renewed and reinvigorated. CTU offers two sabbatical options to meet your needs:

  • The Hesburgh Sabbatical: a renowned four-month curriculum-centered, community-based experience. Learn more.
  • The Independent Sabbatical: an individually designed educational and cultural experience. The Independent Sabbatical provides a choice of courses at Catholic Theological Union and the 11 institutions of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools. Students may opt to take part in the enriching public events, liturgies, workshops, and other special offerings at CTU. Participants can also explore the countless cultural and recreational resources of Chicago. Learn More.
