St. John Vianney Seminary

Lay Division

Welcome!

The St. John Vianney Theological Seminary Lay Division houses our flagship programs of the Biblical and Catechetical Schools in addition to a number of Enrichment Courses that help people know, love, and share their faith. We currently serve 2,500 students in 70 locations throughout the Archdiocese of Denver and the Diocese of Colorado Springs.

The Biblical School is a four-year journey through every book of Scripture that helps people understand the narrative history of God’s saving acts through His patriarchs, prophets, and people, leading up to the fullness of revelation in Jesus Christ.

The Catechetical School is a two-year journey through the Catechism of the Catholic Church that reveals the Catechism to be not a dry book of dogmas but rather a “Ladder of Ascent” which leads us to communion with God in a life of prayer.
