Those interested in a locally hosted, part-time, graduate-level program in theology and spirituality from a Catholic university are encouraged to attend upcoming information sessions concerning the Loyola Institute for Ministry Extension Program of Loyola University New Orleans. Information will be shared and questions answered in a virtual meeting, on Wednesday, May 12, at 7:00 p.m., or Tuesday, May 18, at 10:00 a.m., or in person on Thursday, May 20, at 4:00 p.m. at St. Michael Church Hall, 300 N. Broad St, Canfield, 44406. Please make a reservation to attend one of these sessions, whether online or in person, to learn about the program and application procedures.
Plans are that a local learning group will begin this fall. Loyola University New Orleans offers master’s degrees and certificates in religious education or pastoral studies for those seeking ministry formation or deeper engagement with their faith. Loyola’s program is informed by the method of practical theology and includes Ignatian spiritual formation. In addition to gaining a firm foundation in the Catholic biblical and theological tradition, students can focus their studies in Christian spirituality for ministry, pastoral life and administration, youth and young adult ministry, religion and ecology, and marketplace ministry. Loyola’s Institute for Ministry helps learners to grow in leadership and faith.
For additional information, or to make a reservation for one of the informational sessions, contact Joan Lawson in the Office of Religious Education/Evangelization, Catholic Diocese of Youngstown, 330-744-8451 x290, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
