Required for seminarians
Spiritual Assessment uses instruments, interviews, and reflections that give students opportunities to address their spiritual and pastoral concerns.
Psychological Assessment strengthens and enhances emotional growth in students. While any student may inquire about using this service, it is required for those entering the Seminarian program.
These services are provided by the Danielsen Institute at Boston University, a licensed mental health clinic and pastoral counseling center. The Danielsen Institute, headed by Holy Cross alumnus Dr. George Stavros (MDiv ’91), provides a wide range of assessment services for those seeking candidacy for ordained ministry or religious life.
The assessment was designed in collaboration with the Office of Spiritual Formation and Counseling Services and has been tailored to the needs and concerns of Holy Cross. It captures a comprehensive and balanced understanding of the student, aiding overall emotional and spiritual formation.
