The Gregorian Institute at Benedictine College
Benedictine College, an heir to the legacy of St. Gregory the Great, has founded the Gregorian Institute to contribute to the renewal of Catholic culture and freedom of religious expression in America.
Promoting Catholic identity in public life in four ways:
Equip Catholic leaders
- The Gregorian speech digest
- Speakers and conferences
Train new Catholic leaders
- Gregorian Fellows Leadership Program
- Student action
Celebrate Catholic identity
- American Catholic Hall of Fame
- Online resources
Defend religious freedom
- Memorare Army for Religious Freedom
- Institutional action
By partnering with leading Catholic intellectuals to promote Catholic identity, we hope to benefit:
- The Church, through renewal and sustained attention to Catholic identity;
- The American experiment, through the emphasis on faith’s contribution to self-government;
- Catholic leaders in their fields, by working to crystallize the principles of identity;
- Benedictine College students, forming them in enduring principles and effective action; and
- Benedictine College’s mission, attracting collaborators in our work.
Benedictine College is building one of America’s great Catholic colleges by staying true to its mission of community, faith, and scholarship. Since the year 2000, the college has grown dramatically, adding 11 new residence halls and three academic buildings including the state-of-the-art Ferrell Academic Center. Benedictine 2020 is the college’s visionary plan to build on this success by educating America’s future leaders, building for greatness, and developing a world-class faculty.
