A unique opportunity is available from September 2022 to dioceses in the North of England to participate in the Loyola University Chicago Certificate in Pastoral Ministry.
This Certificate has the support of local dioceses in the North of England. The customized certificate consists of ten six-week modules delivered in an online format allowing participants the freedom and flexibility of study in their own home.
Participants will be supported by a local contact person within the diocese during the two-year course. Participants will need to be serious about their own faith development, willing to serve in the local church and have competent computer skills. It is a non-degree, non-credit programme offered over two years, equipping, catechists, deacons and lay leaders with up-to-date knowledge, skills, and education for contemporary pastoral ministry. Those who successfully complete the entire ten module series will receive a Certificate in Pastoral Ministry from Loyola University Chicago. The course will model adult learning and shared praxis and be rooted in theological texts and the lived experience of participants. Each module will require approximately 20 hours of time for on-line engagement, reading and reflection.
