The University of Saint Francis is offering a Summer Theology Institute entitled “Beauty Will Save the World!” for high school students, taking place June 12-17, 2016 on the USF campus, 2701 Spring Street.
The institute seeks to broaden and enrich the theological understanding of how beauty reveals God in our world in five ways: in the beauty of the earth God created for humanity; in the beauty of the arts, including icons; in the beauty of divine worship, including liturgical chant; in the beauty of the body and human sexuality that God created; and in the beauty of religious and lay vocations and service to the poor and suffering.
The Summer Theology Institute is made possible through a Lilly Endowment Theology Institute for High School Youth grant. The Summer Institute fee is $360 and includes room and board, instruction, supplies and transportation. Scholarships are available with applications required.
Registration and scholarship applications are available online at philosophy.sf.edu/summer-institute. For more information about the Summer Theology Institute, contact Dr. Adam DeVille at adeville.
