Featured Course

 

PASTORAL LEADERSHIP I -While future priests tend to envision their pastoral ministry as preaching and teaching, celebrating the Liturgy and hours of spiritual devotional time, they will also be called upon to lead people;  manage church resources;  manage church finances; develop budgets; engage in planning;  manage church property;  etc.  It is imperative that students about to embark upon a life of pastoral ministry possess knowledge about and demonstrate skill in leadership and administrative management.  This course will provide students with the necessary knowledge and pastoral leadership skills to effectively discharge their administrative duties in pastoral ministry in order to become successful leaders. Tuesday 2:30 p.m. – 4:20 p.m. (2 credits or audit)

  • Perfect for Priests*
