The School of Parish Leadership & Evangelization/Escuela de Liderazgo para la Evangelización (SPLE/ELE)

The SPLE/ELE situates USML’s rich history of preparing men and women for lay and diaconate ministry within a new vision for fostering personal encounters with Jesus Christ. Because the identity and mission of our parishes are constantly evolving, we recognize the critical importance of forming leaders in the Church who are faithful to the timeless truths of Christianity, but also flexible enough to adapt to the spiritual longings and needs of present and future generations. SPLE/ELE offers extensive courses including catechetics, liturgy, Sacred Scripture, Church history, and theology. SPLE/ELE also offers a specific focus on forming parish leaders to catechize and evangelize amid the challenges facing the Church today.
