The Magdala Apostolate is an outreach project of the Institute of Catholic Culture and is dedicated to providing sound doctrinal formation — both initial and ongoing — for women religious and novices, in accord with the Church’s call for a new evangelization and the mission of the Institute of Catholic Culture.
We know that you want to continue your education in the faith, but access to orthodox Catholic education specifically designed for women religious can be cost-prohibitive and difficult to find. The Magdala Apostolate is different. Instead of paying hundreds (or thousands!) of dollars to take a course, or using a pre-recorded video program, sisters enrolled in the Magdala Apostolate are able to use web conferencing technology to participate in live, seminary-level courses in the Catholic faith.
The Magdala Apostolate employs the latest in web conferencing tools to create a virtual classroom setting where students (the sisters) and professors can communicate in a live educational setting. Combining this technology with highly-experienced and solidly orthodox professors, as well as a small student-to-teacher ratio, the Magdala Apostolate offers a unique opportunity to receive a wonderful Catholic education, free of charge, without leaving your community.
Any professed religious sister, novice, or postulant can enroll in the Magdala Apostolate, with the permission of her superior. Our technology allows for either a single sister to enroll, or for a group of sisters from a community to be able to take the course from their community house.
“Soon afterward He went on through cities and villages, preaching and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. And the twelve were with him, and also some women . . . who provided for them out of their means.”
Luke 8: 1-3
