Are You a Luminary®?

Luminaries are rising stars in positions of leadership in Catholic organizations. These Catholic leaders are faithful, knowledgeable, and passionate about their work in dioceses, foundations, pro-life organizations, schools, and the like. Their backgrounds are impressive. Many have advanced degrees in law and theology and have been actively involved in advocacy since high school or college. Because of their Catholic “pedigree,” they are hired to serve in leadership positions in Catholic organizations across the nation and internationally.

Many Catholic leaders have not had the opportunity to acquire “boots-on-the- ground” experience or training in organizational management and leadership. They often have no experience in strategic planning, fiscal management, public relations, human resources, board governance, assessment, and managing a staff.

In contrast, young professionals entering the private sector receive this type of training from companies with the resources to invest in their professional development. Young leaders of Catholic and other faith-based organizations do not have the same access to the resources, training, and mentorship that supports their professional development and helps the organization flourish, until now. 

Luminary® offers a professional certificate combined with an exceptional program experience to director level leaders and decision makers who serve the Catholic Church and her ministries (Clergy, Catholic Conference Directors, Catholic Charities, etc.) and like-minded non-profits with similar goals such as pro-life and pro-family organizations.
