Welcome to the Loyola Institute for Ministry
, which promotes passionate commitment to the promise of God’s Reign and to the mission of sharing the Good News. LIM's degrees are theological, practical, and take seriously the hopes and experience that adults bring to their studies and has a broad vision of ministry, which holds that it is practiced in explicitly ecclesial contexts--in churches, schools and dioceses--and beyond wherever people of faith live and work. What better place to pursue your studies than with a program based in this religiously, culturally, and historically rich setting of New Orleans!  Request Information »  

You have several ways of participating in LIM--on-campus, online, or in extension in learning groups in your location:

  • as a degree-seeking graduate student
  • as a continuing education certificate student (for those involved in ministry and/or education and able to do graduate-level reading)

We hope you consider joining the thousands of graduates around the country and around the world in this transformative educational opportunity. Request Information »
