What are you called to?
Vocation is "where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet." Where is that for you? In learning more about faith? Drawing closer to God? Making a difference in the Church and the world?
LIM can help you discern your vocational call affordably. In addition, our courses are inspired by the best in Catholic theology and animated by Ignatian spirituality; they are transformative and practical. Dynamic on-campus and online learning communities make your studies come alive.
As you respond to God's call, you will have the chance to focus your studies in an area of specialization, such as, in Youth and Young Adult Ministry, Religion and Ecology, Religious Education, Spirituality, Digital Culture and Ministry, and more.
Our programs equip you for jobs in chaplaincy, teaching, or church and non-profit work. On their own or as part of dual degrees with Business, Counseling, or Criminal Justice, they can help you see work in any field as a ministry and so help you live out your baptismal call to Christian action that offers hope and healing to a world in such need today.

Additionally, Sr. Charity led her college in a tree planting as part of its first ever “Environment Day.” Coverage of the event by a local radio station prompted several schools to contact Sr. Charity to learn how they could host a similar event.
