USF Offering Summer Theology Institute

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 For more information about the Summer Theology Institute, contact Dr. Adam DeVille at adeville.
