The Graphology Department at the Seraphicum will be launching a three-year summer course entitled: “Graphology for Formation and Pastoral Ministry.” The course will begin this summer in 2022.

Graphology provides a careful and precise understanding of someone’s personality through the analysis of that person’s handwriting, thus offering an important contribution to his or her human growth. Graphological handwriting analysis is very useful in the context of formation in consecrated life and the priesthood. It is also useful in the canonization process as a tool to trace the personality and characteristics of Servants of God who lived in the past, or those whose behavioral dynamics seem unclear. Graphology is, in essence, applicable to the entire ecclesial universe.
Classes will be held six hours per day, Monday to Friday, from June 24 to July 7, 2022 and again August 18-31, 2022, for a total of 120 semester hours. At the end of the three-year course, the participants will receive a diploma enabling them to work in formation (initial and ongoing), in support of causes of canonization and in support of parishes or other pastoral activities (groups, movements, etc.). Students may attend classes in person at the Seraphicum or online.

The coursework will include:
Elements of General Graphology
Psychology in Religion and Pastoral Life
Psychology: Group Dynamics of Community Life
Graphology and Holiness
Morettian Method and History of Graphology
Franciscan Anthropology
Pedagogical Graphology
Graphology of Christian Life (vices and virtues)
