Dr. Thomas Ryan of the Loyola Institute for Ministry explained how LIM's master's degrees fulfill the educational pre-requisite for certification by the National Association of Catholic Chaplains (NACC).

Monday of Holy Week

Being People of Faith This Holy WeekPhoto of Dr. Daniella Zsupan-Jerome, Ph.D.

Our vocation is always and everywhere to Easter hope that is founded not in the first place on right words and actions but on God’s utter gratuity revealed on the cross and pouring out through the Spirit on all creation. In this webinar, Dr. Daniella Zsupan-Jerome reflected on our world’s suffering—our distancing and vulnerability. Yet in Easter hope, we believe that failure and finitude do not have the last word, and so, Dr. Zsupan-Jerome also reflected on community, the liturgical means of nourishing hope this week, and the ways it invites us to act.

Dr. Daniella Zsupan-Jerome studies liturgy, digital culture, and ministry. She is an adjunct professor in the Loyola Institute for Ministry and author of Connected Toward Communion: The Church and Social Communication in the Digital Age.
