Welcome to the blog of the Center for Catholic Studies at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN! Ever wondered exactly what the Center for Catholic Studies is? Or maybe wondered what a major or minor in Catholic Studies is all about? Look no further. This blog will attempt to give you a quick (and ongoing) taste of the work of the Center for Catholic Studies, especially within its academic programs.
