Small College Could Open in KC-St. Joseph Diocese
The Kansas City Star reports that the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph is considering allowing a nonprofit group from Texas to open a small college in their diocesan headquarters.
According to diocesan officials, The Walsingham Society of Christian Culture and Western Civilization wants to establish a Christ College in Kansas City. The group is considering leasing space from the diocese.
The College would offer a Catholic, seminar-based, Great Books course of study. The intention is to begin a pilot program, with a full academic program beginning in the fall of 2014.
“We are encouraged by the reception from many in the local Catholic community, and we appreciate the welcome and blessing from the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph,” said Brinton Smith, president of The Walsingham Society. “We intend to be faithful in our teaching to the doctrine of the Church, but Christ College is otherwise an independent institution.”

Another Catholic response to the mind-repressing, gonad-stimulating, soul-annihilating main-stream education “opportunities” which are, so to speak, “out there”.
This is very cool.
