Evangelii Gaudium Center

The Evangelii Gaudium Center (CEG) is a laboratory of formation, study and research operating in the perspective of the “new chapter of evangelization” to which the Church is called. In tune with Sophia’s formative project and academic method, the mission of the CEG is to promote and support formation, study and research in the fields of ecclesiology, pastoral theology and mission, spiritual theology and the theology of charisms, with particular attention to the rich diversity of the socio-cultural and ecclesial contexts.

Synodality Training Course

In order to offer a wide-ranging theological and pastoral preparation for a synodal approach to reforming the Church through the “synodal” dynamic itself: by fostering interaction between students and between lecturers and students, thus ensuring a communitarian exercise of theological and pastoral thinking and action through specific workshops as well as in-depth study of the topics addressed.

In synergy with the General Secretariat of the Synod
