Theology Department

" ... FOR WHAT WE PREACH IS NOT OURSELVES, BUT JESUS CHRIST AS LORD, WITH OURSELVES AS YOUR SERVANTS FOR JESUS' SAKE ... "  - 2 CORINTHIANS 4:5
The study of Catholic Christian theology is rooted in the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ. Through the writings, tenets, teachings, and traditions of the Catholic Church, the Theology Department strives to make the words of St. Catherine of Siena - "If you are who God meant you to be, you will set the world on fire" - an enduring understanding in the lives of each of our students. The rich history of our faith is the foundation we build upon to enable our students to preach the Gospel through the message of their lives.
