Studying Psychology Helps in Church Ministry

Father Hubert Jurjewicz, a Polish born priest, recently graduated from the College's doctoral program in counseling psychology.

"For me, studying opens new doors," he says. "I don't spend my time watching TV, I've never been good at sports, and I like to study and do something productive. It's how I relax."

Father Jurjewicz believes that God's work and psychology are inherently linked, and an advanced degree will benefit his work with parishioners.
