About the Tepeyac Leadership Initiative

The Tepeyac Leadership Initiative is a 5-month leadership program oriented toward the development of Catholic professionals to advance the mission of the Church and serve the common good in secular society. TLI participants are chosen from an emergent group of talented Catholic professionals in the public and private sectors across the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix, and throughout the US through our new TLI Online program. TLI educates participants in the core teachings of the Church and how to apply them through their careers.

Our Values

Go deeper into what we stand for and how we serve the Catholic Church.

TLI participants go through intensive study, reflection and dialogue meant to form their minds and equip them with professional knowledge on how to integrate the truths and values of their catholic faith into every aspect of their lives. By drawing on the expertise of California’s and Arizona’s most respected and influential Catholic leaders, participants are exposed to contemporary realities surrounding the most important issues shaping the Catholic Church in the United States.
To have an integral development of mind, body and spirit, all TLI participants are invited to supplement their intellectual advance with opportunities for spiritual growth; allowing participants to live and articulate a vision for the Church in their personal, professional and civic lives. TLI curates each leadership cohort through a robust selection and matching process that builds a diverse group of professionals primed to deepen their passion for advancing their personal spiritual growth in line with the mission of the Church.
  • Jesus and His disciples serve the poor.
  • Followers of Jesus live as though the truth were true.
  • Jesus’ body the Church, works for peace and reconciliation.
  • The Church proclaims God’s plan for marriage and family life.
  • Christians are always seeking new and better ways to tell the Good News of Jesus, specially to youth and the elderly.

With a spirit of charity, fidelity to the Magisterium and intellectual rigor; the Tepeyac Leadership Initiative is a catalyst development experience which equips lay Catholic professionals to become virtuous leaders, while supporting the mission of the Church, influencing the culture and serving the common good.

The sessions were great! I loved the community aspect, and mostly I’m excited to know that this program is not over. I’m glad that I can continue to grow and to learn from my peers.

The speakers were excellent, the readings well-chosen and thoughtful, and the topics relevant. I had an exceptional experience with TLI. No other program brings together professional development, faith formation, and networking like TLI.

Andrew Lishko

The day long retreat was absolutely amazing. The monitor did an excellent job facilitating discussions and keeping everyone on track and on time. The flow of the program seemed to have a very natural progression of topics, and I learned a lot.
