Loyola University, in New Orleans (USA), has a distance learning programme on Ministry. It is called LIMEX - which is short for Loyola Institute for Ministry Extension Programme. It offers post graduate candidates a Masters degree and, for non graduate candidates, there is a certificated version.

There are twelve Courses in all and each has ten sessions of three hours. It is normal for the programme to be completed over four years. St Catherine’s was the first Parish in Britain to sponsor candidates for this course. A group of four parishioners along with three parishioners from St John Vianney’s and another two from other city parishes have completed three courses.

Full details are available from Sister Mary (664 1596).

Integration of Life and Faith

Another resource in training for Ministry that is available is The integration of Life and Faith Course.

A number of parishioners in our cluster parishes have undertaken this and it was found to be of great benefit.

We ware always keen to encourage parishioners from across the Cluster to sign up for this programme.
