tim mcfarland2ENDORSEMENTS OF ELM and Fr. Tim McFarland

Endorsements of ELM and Fr. Tim McFarland:

"Moral Theology" is all about using Catholic moral principles to make morally-acceptable decisions. Fr. McFarland engages his students to grow as they consider what they are learning about Catholic moral principles. He is a gifted and energetic instructor, and I found him to also be a compassionate and faith-filled spiritual leader. His course was one of the best ELM courses I was blessed to have taken.
-Deacon Bill Reid, ELM graduate

“The classes that are offered through the ELM program are absolutely great. Even if you are not interested in a certification, the knowledge, networking and exposure to Church teachings is well worth the time, money and effort to attend them. I have appreciated and am glad to have taken advantage of such offerings over the years.”
-Sid Hayden, ELM graduate, Business Manager at St. Elizabeth Seton Church


Several years ago I was asked to help coordinate the Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) ministry here at St. Elizabeth Seton Church...My heart was in this ministry, but I felt I needed a better foundation to make sure I was serving those attending CRHP weekends in the best way. The ELM program was the answer! So far, this program has blessed me with many insights into the treasures of our Catholic faith, both for my personal faith journey in the Catholic Church, as well as, helping me learn to be a better leader and guide to others.
–Cindy McCune, Co-coordinator of CRHP at St. Elizabeth Seton Church


Several years ago I started taking ELM classes to develop my knowledge of our faith. Over a 3 year period, I completed all but 2 classes (I hope to find a convenient time at Seton to finish the remaining classes, Spirituality and Christology). The Moral Theology class with Fr. McFarland was one of my favorites. His approach to teaching was to share situations with us and challenge us to think out loud about our reasoning. Through these class discussions, the readings, and his explanations, I gained a better perspective on Catholic Church teachings. My experience with the ELM program was very positive, and I encourage anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the 'whys' behind our faith to enroll.
- Brian Freyberger, Co-Chairperson of Fund for the Family Room Initiative, Coordinator of Seton Engaged, Co-Coordinator Seton Youth Ministry, CRHP Zeta Group Lay Director


Even if you only take 1 ELM course this is it. I had Fr. Tim for moral theology and he is an outstanding professor. He involves his students in the learning process better than any professor I have had. I had him as a professor for 2 courses.
-Chuck Damler, Bachelors of Arts in ELM, parishioner since 1985


The Ecclesial Lay Ministry program is one of the hidden treasures of the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana! The connections I have made with other ELM graduates are priceless! I found the pastoral workshops offered in this program to be very practical and helpful. I appreciated that the Pastoral Office of Catechesis accepted courses I had taken elsewhere and applied them toward my ELM certification requirements.
-Elisabeth Groot, Coordinator of Adult Faith Formation, St. Elizabeth Seton Church, ELM in 2012, MAPT at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College
