Holy Spirit College Named to National Catholic Register’s 2018 Catholic Identity College Guide

Posted: 9/17/2018

The latest edition of the National Catholic Register’s Catholic Identity College Guide includes Holy Spirit College as one of only 38 “faithfully Catholic colleges and universities” in the United States.

Colleges respond to questions addressing issues critical to Catholic Identity:
1. Does the president make the public “Profession of Faith” and take the “Oath of Fidelity”?
2. Is the majority of the board of trustees Catholic?
3. Is the majority of the faculty Catholic?
4. Do you publicly require all Catholic theology professors to have the mandatum?
5. Did all Catholic theology professors take the “Oath of Fidelity”?
6. Do you provide daily Mass and posted times (at least weekly) for individual confession?
7. Do you exclude advocates of abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem-cell research, cloning or advocates of the redefinition of marriage as commencement speakers and/or recipients of honorary degrees?
8. Do you exclude sponsoring campus groups and clubs that are not in line with Catholic teaching?
9. Do you prohibit coed dorms?
10. Do your student health services prohibit referrals to abortion businesses?

Responses of “Yes” to the above questions reflect “essential elements of the renewal of Catholic identity called for by Pope St. John Paul II’s 1990 apostolic constitution on higher education, Ex Corde Ecclesiae (Out of the Heart of the Church), its 2000 ‘Application to the United States,’ canon law and other relevant Church documents.”

Dr. Eric Wearne, Provost of the College said: “We are honored by this acknowledgement. Our identity as an authentic Catholic institution is fundamental to our mission and to every program that we offer.”  

Holy Spirit College offers undergraduate and graduate programs in Theology and Philosophy from its Atlanta campus together with individual courses that can be taken for credit or audit. Undergraduate concentrations offered include both Business and Education. Admissions applications are accepted on a rolling basis
