Loyola Institute for Ministry

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 vocation. In addition, our affordable courses are grounded in the best in Catholic theology, inspired by Pope Francis's commitment to creation and justice, 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 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.
