Diploma in Pastoral Ministry & Leadership and Certificate in Pastoral Ministry courses from January 2021.


As these courses are mainly based on-line they are very accessible to all and can be especially relevant during our current pandemic. They are offered in association with the Institute of Pastoral Studies in Loyola University Chicago and Liverpool Hope University and are currently serving all the diocese in the Northern Province and Wrexham and Cardiff.

The Lay Formation Fund can enable potential students to receive financial support and it is hope that parishes will also consider supporting students who wish to commit to the 2 or 3 years required.


Full details are attached and Information Sessions begin on 22nd October via a webinar.

Registration is required to attend one of these and full details are available in the brochures.
