2. Diploma in University Pastoral

Diplomado Pastoral Universitaria

The Universidad de Monterrey and the Archdiocese of Monterrey, in association with the Consejo Episcopal Latinoamericano (CELAM), invite you to participate in the Diploma in Campus Ministry, offered annually.

The purpose of this diploma is to train university pastoral agents in the development of creative proposals so that, from the dialogue with the world of culture, they promote a personal encounter with Jesus Christ and collaborate in the humanization of the university environment and society.

It is addressed to lay people, seminarians, permanent deacons, religious men and women, and priests who already work in the University Pastoral or prepare to work in it.

The course is designed to cover 144 hours of work. A tutor will accompany you in your learning process through e-mail and scheduled videoconferences.
