  • The transparent management of financial resources

We offer the tools needed to support those responsible for serving the primary activity of the Church, especially in this times marked by increasingly scarce resources and ever-changing rules and structures. The program recognizes the “managerial” role of the priest as implicit in his vocational responsibilities and seeks to introduce new approaches and methodologies, new managerial and organizational techniques, for identifying, solving and even preventing crises, as well as reflects on the place of the priest’s managerial responsibilities within his call as to live as shepherd and servant.

I’m confident Catholic institutions will benefit from administrative and managerial formation of the clergy. Our goal is equipping the Church with skilled leaders.
