> Founded to promote the quality of ministerial education in the service of church and society

We are an organization of educators, theologians and administrators representing Roman Catholic institutions that offer graduate programs in ministry.

Through regular meetings and networking, we draw our strength from open dialogue and shared vision. Graduate programs in ministry and pastoral theology prepare students for various areas of service to the Church including parish and family life, pastoral care, and religious education.
