The Loyola Institute for Ministry Extension Program (LIMEX), offered by the Archdiocese of Louisville and Loyola University New Orleans, is accepting adult students for a new learning cohort to begin coursework in the fall.
LIMEX offers master’s degrees and graduate certificates in theology and ministry, and continuing education credentials.
“It’s really designed for anyone who wants to learn about their faith on a deeper level. And it gives them the background to do ministry,” said Art Turner, director of the Archdiocese of Louisville’s Office of Faith Formation. “It’s also meant to be a help for people who would like to work for the church and someone who can’t do a traditional program.”
Classes are conducted both in small groups and online.
“If someone doesn’t have a college degree you can do the certificate,” said Turner. “If you do have a college degree you’re encouraged to do the master’s.”
The program has been offered in the archdiocese since 2005. Turner said learning cohorts typically range from 6 to 10 people.
“We do have a number of people now in the archdiocese — working in parishes and archdiocesan agencies — who have taken this program and found it very beneficial,” he added.
An information session will be offered on May 13 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at St. Agnes Church, 1920 Newburg Road. Dr. Tom Ryan, director of the Loyola Institute for Ministry, will lead the session.
