Theology Department    
The study of theology, properly the study of God, is fundamental to the growth of all men. Ultimately it is the highest pursuit of the Truth, as God is Truth. It is the attempt to come to know Him who is the origin of all that is. Theology is therefore indispensable to the educational development of man.

 

At Benedictine, we give our young men the tools necessary to begin this lifelong pursuit of the Truth. We begin with a yearlong fundamental examination of the Catholic catechism, including basic doctrines, morality, prayer, and virtue. We move through a year of Biblical and moral studies into a year's intensive study of Christology and ecclesiology, looking for absolutes in a relative world. Finally, in our final year, we apply these principles to life beyond school, studying how to be faithful in college, how to be good husbands, fathers and citizens, and how to listen to God for that possible calling to the priesthood.

 

To accomplish this we challenge our young men to think, to consider, to contemplate and to discuss what they believe and what they are learning. We therefore focus on developing skills in logic, philosophy, writing, and reasoning. All of this leads to sound understanding, often through rational disagreement and development of thought and expression.
