Who We Are

Through its programs and activities, Maryhill School of Theology helps its students learn to do theology as a reflection-action process between the Judaeo-Christian Tradition and the present day situation. In this manner, it contributes to the growth of a creative, Filipino theological scholarship. Maryhill fosters the development of a religious and missionary spirituality and the acquisition of the knowledge and skills necessary to carry out the Church's missionary and pastoral tasks.

A Catholic theological institute of the Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (CICM), Maryhill happily welcomes laypersons, professed religious, and diocesan priests and seminarians to share and enrich this vision and program within their local Churches.
