BRIEF HISTORY


The School of Pastoral and Religious Education is the culmination of a series of initiatives undertaken by some members of the faculty of the Dominican Institute, led by the President Emeritus, Rev. Prof. Anthony Akinwale, O.P., to establish programs that will provide ongoing formation to consecrated persons, priests and laypersons. This initiative began in 2009 and was then simply known as the Spirituality Program. The positive response to this initiative, particularly from a number of female religious congregations, would prompt the restructuring of the whole program for more effective delivery. This restructuring will result in the establishment of the School of Pastoral and Religious Education as an arm of the Dominican Institute. The School is headed by a Director who reports directly to the President of the Institute.

 

As an arm of the Dominican Institute, the School of Pastoral and Religious Education draws from the same intellectual wellspring for which Dominicans are well noted. The foundation of the School of Pastoral and Religious Education is in line with the already established role of the Dominicans in Nigeria in various formative programs. Among these include the Joint Novitiate Program hosted in the Priory of St. Thomas Aquinas, Ibadan. The Dominican friars supply most of the instructors for this program. Included also, is the first ever theological formation program for laypersons in Nigeria. Established in 2004 by the then Pastor of St. Dominic Church, Yaba, Fr. Vincent Ubili, O.P., the Siena Institute of Theology for Lay Persons (SITLAP), was the first of its kind. Since its establishment it has continued to provide basic theological and doctrinal formation to laypersons, particularly those resident in Lagos. The Dominicans are, therefore, known to have a well-established tradition of providing sound and excellent formative programs. This tradition is what is embodied in the School of Pastoral and Religious Education
