MORE INFO     Dr. Thomas Sauline, Office of Religious Education, 330-744-8451 

The Diocese of Youngstown Office of Religious Education is hosting an information
meeting about 
the Loyola University New Orleans Institute for Ministry Extension
Program (LIMEX) on June 23, 
2015, 7-8:30 p.m., at Our Lady of the Lakes Parish,
St. James Church Hall, North Jackson, Ohio. The 
information includes course
requirements, tuition, spiritual formation, and application for this graduate 
religious
education and pastoral studies degree and certificate program in the Diocese of
Youngstown. 
This program of graduate ministry education is for lay, religious, and
ordained persons who are 
engaged in Church ministry or for laity who want to
address themselves to their ministry in the world.

Loyola Institute for Ministry (LIM), in cooperation with church related sponsoring agencies
across theUnited States, Scotland, England, Belize, Canada, and Nigeria, responds to the
needs of ministry and education personnel who have limited access to Catholic educational
resources by offering on-site programs leading to the master of religious education and
master of pastoral studies degrees with focus areas in Christian spirituality for pastoral
ministers, pastoral life and administration, youth ministry, Hispanic ministry, religion and
ecology, marketplace ministry, digital ministry, and small Christian community formation.
LIM offers this same program of study for a noncredit continuing education certificate.

The core courses are taken in learning groups; each course is led by a Loyola certified
facilitator. Sessions for each course employ a learning design in which downloadable class
lectures and other required and suggested readings are correlated with the participant's
experience by means of reflective processes. Each session provides opportunities for
prayer, reflection and faith sharing based on the themes and graces of the Spiritual
Exercises of Saint Ignatius of Loyola. Students also choose two additional online courses
in their focus area and two online electives.

Registration for the information meeting is requested. Contact the Diocese of Youngstown
