Laudetur Iesus Christus! This Sunday November 22nd we are pleased to announce a major event we will be co-hosting Sunday with Father Jason Barone, who returns to St. Ann parish to unveil a new Veterum Sapientia Institute.

As you may recall Fr. Barone is a Latinist and gave an excellent talk before the CLMC in 2017 on the language of Latin. Now come join us to learn about this new institute he is forming with Dr. Eric Hewett, and Dr. Nancy Llewellyn. This will be great interest not just for clergy but for laity. Please read and invite your friends and family:

Please read their important announcement and invite all your friends and family to attend.

We are contacting you because you have in the past participated in or expressed interest in our Veterum Sapientia week-long courses on ecclesiastical Latin.  We wish to inform you that we have founded the Veterum Sapientia Institute (VSI) to continue this work of promoting and teaching Latin and Greek in the Catholic world, particularly to seminarians, priests, and religious, desired by Pope Saint John XXIII.

We will hold our first public event at 2 PM EST on Sunday, November 22nd at St. Ann’s Catholic Church in Charlotte, NC. It will be a presentation on the Apostolic Constitution Veterum Sapientia, its reception, other authoritative documents on Latin, and VSI’s plans to respond to the Church’s unchanged desire for Latin and Greek education. Feel free to attend in person or view our live-streaming online.  Please visit our homepage at www.veterumsapientia.org on Sunday for a link to the live-stream.

 In January, we will begin offering ten-week courses online covering both ecclesiastical Latin and Greek.  We encourage you to take a look at our course offerings. We also intend to develop many online resources for both clerics and laity.  For more information on course offerings, resources, and live-streaming, please visit www.veterumsapientia.org.

Lastly, please consider spreading the word about VSI, be it to clerics or interested laity, to potential students or potential donors. We are on all the major social media platforms. With your assistance, we hope to help the Church fulfil her own vision for Latin and Greek!
