STS Summer Religious Program
STS Summer Program - Graduate and Undergraduate
STS offers a 6-week summer program (mid June through July), that is open to religious students as well as lay students. Students may continue their studies from the fall/spring semesters through the summer or they may enroll in the summer only program.
Summer Graduate Program in Theology for Religious and Laity
Integrating theological studies into the daily rhythm of Religious life serves to enhance and broaden the academic experience and spiritual renewal of our Religious students. It also gives full meaning and coherence to one's vocation and propels the student to deeper love of Christ and the Church. Our summer program for Religious forms each student both intellectually and spiritually, and includes recreational opportunities and optional outing and pilgrimage events. It is open to religious, consecrated, and priests. Students may take the courses toward a masters degree or audit courses for personal enrichment.
In addition, our campus provides the necessary spiritual environment to allow the Religious to faithfully meet the obligations of their vows and daily prayer life, including the Liturgy of the Hours, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and daily Mass. Our beautiful campus and facilities make the transition from the home community to study at STS seamless.
The Religious who stay on campus are housed on a private residence hall floor where each student has their own room and bath. Meals are provided daily. There is a common room on the floor and many other common areas in the residence hall such as a TV room, a lounge, a kitchen, and a reading room. The Religious communities are welcome to organize their own schedule within the framework of the spiritual program and meals offered by STS.
