In the last months 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.
In particular, Cardinal Pell has asked the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross to organize a course of formation for priests and other lay and religious who work for the Church in economic and administrative capacities.
Our Research Centre has responded to this call, and together with the LUISS Business School of Rome, the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, the University of St. Thomas of St. Paul-Minneapolis, we are developing an initial outline of the program, that you can find here.

THIRD EDITION OF THE ECONOMICS COURSE FOR STUDENTS OF THE PONTIFICAL UNIVERSITIES
Pope Francis has picked up the message "economy at the service of the human person", contained in the Encyclical Caritas in Veritate by Benedict XVI, in his call for a "poor Church for the poor." To make our small contribution to this noble and holy cause, we have developed a course providing basic knowledge of the economy to interested students at the Pontifical Universities. Today, more than ever, it is necessary, on the one hand, to be able to properly formulate the Social Doctrine of the Church, and on the other, to be able to know how to manage efficiently the material goods available for Evangelization. The title of the course is Economics for Ecclesiastics. The lecturers, of great international prestige, are specialists in their respective areas: Lord B. Griffiths of Fforestfach, Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs, who is also the coordinator of the whole activity, and Professor Emeritus Antonio Argandoña, at IESE Business School.
