Counseling Type Job Within The Church

I am about to transfer to a Cal State to pursue my bachelors degree in psychology… And after that my Masters. Are there any jobs within the catholic church along the lines of psychology, counseling, therapy… etc.?

I am not too familiar with the Catholic Church, as I am going through RCIA right now.


You might take a look at They have a counseling category and also a search feature so that you can see what types of jobs are available and what the requirements are. Offhand I think that at least some Catholic Charities offices offer counseling services but I don’t know what their qualifications/requirements are.
