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.
"Philosophy and the Catholic Mind"- A Catholic Philosophy Program
Please check for our upcoming courses and registration
The School of Theological Studies (1969) at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary (1832) was founded in response to the call of Vatican II to educate Religious Sisters and the Laity to enrich the culture with dedicated Catholic disciples and teachers. We offer graduate studies in Theology and Philosophy taught by many seminary professors. The Sisters live the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their daily lives. Seminary Philosophy Professors are developing four, foundational level, online Philosophy classes for the Sisters who serve in critical roles in society, schools, hospitals, children’s homes, child care centers, communities and universities in the midst of the contemporary culture. As icons of God’s light and love, Sisters bring the truth of Jesus Christ.
