About this course

The Graduate Certificate in Mission and Catholic Culture is designed for professionals in Catholic institutions of higher education and faith-based organisations and agencies who wish to enhance their understanding of the specifically Christian and Catholic context in which they are leaders, and to develop skills in the promotion of a Christian and Catholic culture. In contemporary and emerging post-Christian contexts, Catholic and other Christian mission based organisations are placing a greater and more strategic emphasis on the capacity of their staff to grasp and articulate the mission of their organisations, and to do so intelligently and in meaningful ways. Through an alignment of individual and organisational mission, meaning and purpose, a person can develop "mission literacy". This has become a vital and effective way to facilitate the flourishing of both the individual within an organisation, and the organisation itself. There is a need to deliberately and consciously develop "mission literacy". Any person that has such a developed and conscious 'mission literacy', or is exposed to it, can function in ways that more effectively and efficiently promote human flourishing and dignity – including for themselves. Further, such 'literacy' can result in internal organisational cultures that support high productivity because they are characterised by concepts such as 'harmonious', and 'welcoming' places of belonging and support. The purpose of this course is to support and assist personnel within Catholic and other faith based organisations to acquire the factual and experiential knowledge through readings, reflections and discussions. This supports development in the conceptual and analytical capabilities required to reflect on and to realise personal and organizational mission alignment.
