The Sapientis Board has agreed to waive all course fees for clergy, religious and seminarians with effect from the Michaelmas Term 2010.
The Sapientis Institute believes that goal of reviving authentic Thomistic Philosophy within the Church will best be served by encouraging as many clergy, religious and seminarians to study with us.
We began to pursue this goal by making our courses available on-line in order to remove a geograhical barrier. We now wish to remove any potential financial barrier as we are acutely aware that in many countries fees of the Sapientis Institute may be beyond the means of a number of clergy.
With regard to Latin we have made a number of seat available in our Latin 1A and Latin 1B courses. The reasons for this are as follows:
- to remove a barrier that some priests may encounter when wishing to study the philsophical, theological and liturguical patrimony of the Church.
- the Board is aware that many diocese are requiring priests who wish to celebrate the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite to prove their comptence in the Latin language. We are hoping to make this easier for priests by offering a free on-line course in Ecclesiastical Latin.
