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. However you serve the Church, 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 U.S. Bishops in the National Directory for the Formation, Ministry, and Life of Permanent Deacons in the United States.

We encourage you to make regular retreats over the course of your time as a student. The Archabbey Guest House and Retreat Center offers a number of retreats.
