September 1 –  December 16, 2022 in Chicago, IL


Crafted for ministers in the Church, the Hesburgh Sabbatical Program is a curriculum-centered, community-based, holistic sabbatical that fosters both personal and professional renewal and provides continuing formation. Men and women from around the world come to beautiful Chicago for four months in the fall semester to rest, to study, to enjoy, and to share their experiences and learn from others who are in ministry today.


With more than 2,500 alumni, the Hesburgh Sabbatical Program has provided renewal for clergy, religious, and lay ministers for more than 30 years.


“THE HESBURGH SABBATICAL PROGRAM EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. There were so many components that made it a fabulous experience for me: the quality of our sessions, the international community, and the extra lectures and events that CTU has to offer. All of that in addition to everything that is at your disposal in Chicago – theaters, museums, parks, restaurants, and so much more.”    — Debbie Hintz, Past participant


Come relax, renew, and refresh in Chicago with fellow pastoral ministers from around the world.
