What Our Students Say

  • " I strive to link observations and concerns from my experience as a physician, together with a potential Franciscan response to some of those concerns. That response is drawn from the message of beauty, joy, and Goodness, that can be found in the Franciscan tradition’s approach to the care of the sick."

    Dr. Margaret McCahill, Master of Theological Studies ‘16
  • “What I appreciate about the Franciscan approach was that it was a head-heart connection ... One of the key facets of the experience was the people...grounded, good, real, loving people who are intellectually on point, and personally engaged. The program, the school, and the people that run it foster a sense of gratitude and engagement."

    Michael Wynne, Master of Theological Studies ‘07
  • As a Board-Certified Chaplain & Certified Child Life Specialist, Rebecca provides support to help families and service providers who walk with them through the loss of a child. "At FST, people from all walks of life share in scholarship and practical theology. There is a live ministry happening, and I was always journeying with people who were informing my journey."

    Rebecca Freeman, Master of Divinity ‘16
