Special Discounts and Packages

  • Diaconal DLM Package: Are you a United Church Designated Lay Minister who has discerned a call to Diaconal Ministry? For the tuition cost of a Praxis year (see above) you can do a Praxis year at CCS plus a theme learning circle. This will give you access to a Diaconal mentor and resources to explore Diaconal identity, practice in action and reflection, and an opportunity to learn in community with Diaconal colleagues about specific aspects of spiritual care, education and worship, or social justice – at a savings of more than $800. Contact the registrar for more information.
  • Refresher Discount: Have you completed a particular CCS learning circle but would like to take it again for your own refreshment? You can audit a learning circle you’ve completed already for half the regular tuition price. Great for alumni! Contact the registrar for more information.
