The Program of Church Management teaches how to manage the temporal assets of the Church honestly and wisely, in conformity with the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and with accordance to canon law.

 

The Program of Church Management (PCM) is a course organized by the Markets, Culture and Ethics Research Centre to give clerics, seminarians, religious and lay persons economic, financial and administrative skills in order to be exemplary in the stewardship of the ecclesiastic temporal patrimony.

It has become increasingly apparent that there is a need for a managerial-administrative formation for those who will be responsible for the Church’s material goods.

In raising awareness of this great need, not only have future priests and the economists of individual dioceses responded, but also members of the Church hierarchy, who are ready to contribute to a solution.

The Church needs to be exemplary in the stewardship of her material assets in order to give testimony to the Gospel. The pastoral use of her material goods is a constitutive element of the Church, and the correct dealing with money is an important element of the spirituality of any person entrusted with leadership roles.

Unlike secular business schools where students learn to create wealth and build businesses, this program focuses on how to serve the poor effectively and use the material assets of the Church honestly.

Participants learn the best managerial practices in conformity with the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and with accordance to canon law.

In the Catholic Church, faithful lay, religious, and clergy are all looking for creative ways to provide spiritual support and access to sacraments.
