ARCHDIOCESE OF DENVER ANNOUNCES NEW INSTITUTE, SEMINARY

          DENVER (CWNews.com) - Archbishop Charles Chaput on Monday announced that the Archdiocese of Denver was launching a new major seminary and theological institute.

          The St. John Vianney Theological Seminary will begin to educate all of the archdiocese's growing number of seminarians in Denver for the first time. The seminary will operate as part of the new Our Lady of the New Advent Theological Institute which will offer pontifical degrees in association with the Pontifical Lateran University of Rome.

          Archbishop Chaput said the new institute is "dedicated to forming a new generation of Catholic evangelizers for today's new mission territory -- right here in northern Colorado." At first, the institute will offer STB (baccalaureate in sacred theology) degrees only to seminarians in its initial phase, but will eventually be opened to laymen in the future. The archbishop said he also hopes to offer licentiate and doctorate programs as well.
