The Thomistic Institute for Ongoing Formation

The Mission of the Institute

The Thomistic Institute for Ongoing Formation primarily helps students think in a serious way about the principles of Catholic theology under the guidance of St. Thomas Aquinas in order to help save their own souls and to help save the souls of others. The program does its work in fidelity to the Sacred Scriptures, Tradition, and the Church's Magisterium and gives the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas a privileged place.

The Need for the Institute

There is little evidence that the faith is being passed on both in its entirety and without reservation, and in a deep and coherent way. As a result, we have lost the tradition and any coherent and integrated view of reality. Our Catholic heritage is the birthright of Catholics; a rich, vibrant, and glorious tradition that few know very well but all deserve to be given.

“The real challenge of contemporary Catholic life is to possess and transmit integrally any coherent account of classical philosophical and theological doctrine at all.”

Fr. Thomas Joseph White, O.P., “The Challenge of Contemporary Natural Theology,” Nova et Vetera (English Edition), Spring 2012, vol. 10, no. 2, 527.
