A new Catholic liberal arts college in England!

His Hermeneuticalness, my friend Fr. Tim Finigan, posted about a great initiative in England.  A group formed to establish a Catholic liberal arts college along the lines of Wyoming Catholic College and Thomas Aquinas College in California.

Fr. Finigan wrote:

The Benedictus Trust has been set up to found a Catholic university college in Britain, offering a traditional Liberal Arts programme of undergraduate study. Such courses can be found in the United States but as yet there is nothing similar in England. The Benedictus Trust is proposing to set up this new Catholic university college on the principles set out by Blessed John Henry Newman in The Idea of a University.

Nowadays in Britain, you can get degrees in all sorts of subjects. There doesn’t seem to be any reason why it should not be possible to get one in the liberal arts. I do hope that this project succeeds.

So do I!  And if I can be of help, I will help.

WDTPRS kudos to the Benedictus Trust.

    That made me chuckle… a dark, depressed kind of chuckle.
