Make A Difference in the Church and World
At the Loyola Institute for Ministry (LIM), we offer graduate degrees and certificates that are transformative and affordable. Our goal is to promote our students’ passionate commitment to the promise of God's Reign and to the mission of sharing the Good News. We believe our best shot is in the combination of theology and spirituality and a focus on practical implications.
We take your future seriously, and we have a broad vision of ministry. It is practiced within Church settings and beyond--wherever people of faith live and work. We offer degrees that will help you reach your goals and advance your career, whether you work in a in a church or religious school or are answering the call to holiness in everyday life by seeking a deeper connection between faith and work in the world.
Recently, Religious Education, the official publication of the Religious Education Association, published faculty member Tracey Lamont’s article, “Catholic Schools as Spaces for Transformative Encounter.” It explores how Catholic secondary school curriculums on “Ecumenical and Interreligious Issues” can unfold through intentional pedagogical methods that help religious educators teach about religious pluralism in a way that nurtures the developmental needs of adolescents, deepens their religious and moral identity, and develops habits of mind committed to the common good.
Two Loyola students are Franciscan Missionary Sisters for Africa, Kenyan natives currently ministering to internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Wau, South Sudan. Sr. Anne Mbithi Wandia and Sr. Leonidah Mokua, along with many other women religious serving in South Sudan, foster hope for survivors of tremendous violence, trauma, and disruption. See the Global Sisters' Report story on their congregation's work.
