The Maryhill School of Theology (MST) have recently updated the curriculum of the General Theology Program (GTP) and the Masters Degree Programs as approved by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). Starting Academic Year 2017-2018, students who are enrolled both the General Theology Program and the Masters Degree Program is going to finish for two years their Masters Degree. Yet they still have another two years to complete their General Theology Program as requirement for the Ordination to Priesthood.
It was indeed a joyful celebration shared by the community thanking and praising Incarnate Wisdom through Mary for the gift of vocation through success in theological studies in preparation for future ministry.
Glory to Jesus in Mary! Glory to God Alone!
