What is the ICT?

The Institute of Catholic Theology provides continuing education for adult Catholics. Founded in 2009 by Fr. John Ehrich, STL, the ICT offers a wide variety of courses, both live and archived on the internet, that can be taken at your leisure. Whether you are new to adult education or are looking to delve into the richness of Catholic Intellectual tradition, these courses are designed to strengthen one's Christian discipleship through intellectual formation.

Welcome from the Director

Welcome to the Institute of Catholic Theology. It is our pleasure to serve you. Our goal at the Institute is to help strengthen your life in Christ through intellectual formation. In Romans 12:2, St. Paul urges us to “be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that you may prove what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Our hope here is that we can assist you in that process. We offer conferences, live courses, online courses and in-person support for those in Franciscan University of Steubenville’s online Masters of Theology and the Masters of Catechetics and Evangelization programs. So whether you are new to the faith or a veteran, we are here to support.

In the meantime, sign up for my Weekly Scripture Reflections, meant to help you prepare for the Sunday Gospels. There’s no charge - just sign up and they will come right to your email!
