Welcome to the Lay Division
Providing world class formation for the lay faithful!
FOR YOU…IN THE PEW
To put people in contact and communion with the Person of Jesus Christ, Who alone leads us to the heart of the Father in the Holy Spirit – in essence, making and maturing disciples. We do this through various offerings that study God’s call to each and every person to have a personal relationship with Him in the Church He established with the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ.
The St. John Vianney Theological Seminary Lay Division houses our flagship programs of the Denver Catholic Biblical and Catechetical Schools, as well as a number of other programs of study that help people to know, love, and share their faith. Every school year, we serve thousands of students in dozens of locations throughout the Archdiocese of Denver, along with online course offerings for anybody, anywhere in the world.
Our goal is to not just give students knowledge of the faith, but a genuine love of the faith. And through that love, to desire to share the faith with others. Wherever you’re at in your faith, we have something for everybody!
