Summer Institute of Christian Spirituality

SICS Logo

SICS overview

The Summer Institute is specifically designed for adults seeking to deepen their faith and to explore the vast traditions of Christian spirituality. The Institute in Mobile is comprised of two, one-week sessions, while in Atlanta both weekend and weeklong sessions are available.   Participants may attend either or both sessions.  The curriculum is designed to study a wide variety of spiritual masters and mystics, along with biblical, liturgical and social themes. To further add to the breadth of the Institute, Spring Hill faculty are joined each year by well-known visiting faculty. The academic coursework is enhanced by the cultivation of a faith community, through daily liturgical prayer and personal sharing. While rooted in Catholic theology, the program is fully ecumenical and welcomes persons of all faiths.
