Serving Those Who Serve The Church

Ecclesia brings to Mount Saint Mary’s University speakers and events for the education and enrichment of ministers from throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and beyond, who serve the Church as volunteers or professionals.

During the COVID pandemic, we are offering programs online, by ZOOM, rather than on our Doheny Campus.

Ecclesia reflects the Mount's commitment to the development and support of ministry for the contemporary Church and the Church of the future.
