The study of theology should not be simply an intellectual
exercise. It engages the whole person: the pursuit of learning and
holiness, as reflected in our school's Benedictine motto,
Sanctitate et Scientia. Whether you serve the Church as a
professional minister, volunteer actively, teach or simply live out
your baptismal calling in faith, you do so not just with your mind,
but with your entire self.
We can provide you a balanced, well-rounded, educational
experience with a special focus on pastoral issues. Your Saint
Meinrad education rests on a solid foundation of four fundamental
pillars of formation - human, spiritual, intellectual and pastoral - as called for by the
United States Bishops in Co-Workers
in the Vineyard of the Lord, a foundational document on
lay ecclesial ministry.
