The Program of Church Management
(L to R) Fr. Lawrence Sakubita Like (Zambia) and Deacon Malusi Ncanaris (South Africa) are students in the new Program of Church Management (PCM)
The Markets, Culture, and Ethics Research Centre (MCE) of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross is equipping Church leaders with management skills to carry out the Church mission. MCE is offering a year-long program of study in Church management to provide leaders with the secular skills needed to implement Catholic social teaching.
Since February 5th, a class of nearly 40 students comprised of priests, laity, and consecrated religious members have been attending courses in a variety of disciplines including economics and finance to gain skills directly applicable to their leadership roles in the Church.
The Heart of Santa Croce is
Christ in Our Students
|Fr. John Wauck|
"I see in my students the future of the Church...bishops, professors, even martyrs and saints of the 21st century."
"For me, what is most exciting about teaching at Santa Croce is seeing in the faces and behind the faces of my students the souls whose lives they will touch. Souls whom I will probably never meet in India, Africa, Latin America, Europe, North America -- and that's the future of the Church I see in my students."
"I am deeply aware when I am teaching my class that I am talking to and with people who will be professors, perhaps bishops, perhaps even martyrs and saints of the 21st century."
Father John Wauck, Professor of Literature
The University was conceived in the heart of a saint (St. Josemaria), and co-founded by St. John Paul II and Blessed Alvaro del Portillo, the University's first Chancellor. It is an internationally prestigious university for ecclesiastical sciences. It is located in Rome, Italy. The University has students and supporters from all over the world.
The Pontifical University of the Holy Cross Foundation assists the University in its financial needs and grants scholarships to students from poor dioceses wishing to attend the University.
The Foundation accepts gifts from donors within the United States in order to support the University in training students to impact the world.
