Thomas More College Of Liberal Arts: Academically Strong, Fully Faithful
Unapologetic fidelity to the Magisterium
Many Catholics are intent on receiving a fruitful education centered on Christ and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church he founded, that they may live productive lives as friends of God, and shape society according to the divine plan of our Redeemer. Simply, they see the purpose of their life as one of love for Truth and fidelity to God and his Church.Thomas More College has the power to change the world.

Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver, during his address at the first session of the 15th symposium for the Canon Law Association of Slovakia, observed that many in the U.S. are indifferent to a process taking place within our country which "social scientists like to call "secularization" - but which, in practice, involves repudiating the Christian roots and soul of our civilization."
Yet not all are indifferent to what is a malignant desire to empty the soul of our nation, stripping her of her Christian foundation in order to construct an impoverished city which is opposed to God. There are many Catholics and other Christians who realize the precious, invaluable worth of truth, and who understand the real treasure contained in the human intellect created in God's image and likeness, an intellect that draws its nourishment and builds its knowledge on the Foundation of Wisdom, Jesus Christ, who is the Source of intellectual light, and who is the Life-Blood of the Catholic Church.
Those Catholics who understand that the supreme purpose of the human intellect is to seek out and learn the truth about God, are well aware of the priceless value of a proper education which is grounded in the fullness of truth as the Catholic Church alone transmits to the nations. Intellectual knowledge which is devoid of God's revelation as it is carefully passed on to the faithful by the Church is an impairment, a hindrance to true human freedom, and often sets one on a path toward disorder, increasing an individual's susceptibility to the various errors of our age. As an effective antidote to these errors, many Catholics are intent on receiving a fruitful education centered on Christ and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church he founded, that they may live productive lives as friends of God, and shape society according to the divine plan of our Redeemer. Simply, they see the purpose of their life as one of love for Truth and fidelity to God and his Church. In diligently living out such a sacred purpose, they are led to Catholic educational institutions such as the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts.
Unapologetic Fidelity To The Magisterium
Wise Catholics understand that fidelity to the living Magisterium (teaching office of the Church) is a crucial aspect of their faith, for it is contrary to the tenets of logic to claim love for Christ yet live in willful dissent against the authoritative teaching of his Bride. At Thomas More College, students find a true, unwavering and dedicated love for the Church. The Thomas More College website openly attests that "Thomas More College is dedicated to forming students within the Catholic intellectual tradition and with unapologetic fidelity to the Magisterium."
Those who choose Thomas More College of Liberal Arts for their educational goals often share what may be described as a countercultural view of society and the world. That is, in a vision of profound clarity, they see the Church as God's plan for the world. This plan is the plan; not, rather, merely a secondary or alternative plan. In fact, the Church is the divine plan for all people, in all places, in every state of life. When we understand that the Church was born from the blood and water which flowed from Christ's side, a life-giving sacrifice on the cross for his Church, the light begins to flood in, revealing the tremendous importance of the Church as a sacrament of salvation which transforms nations and people, building up the Body of Christ. It is precisely the realization of such a truth that leads students to Thomas More college.
In embracing the truth of the Church, "the Trustees, Administrators, Faculty, and Staff of the College all pledge unreserved fidelity to the Catholic Faith and undivided loyalty to the local ordinary, the Bishop of Manchester, and to the Vicar of Christ, our Holy Father the Pope." As a result, "the College joyfully finds its identity in the task of communicating the whole truth about man and God and, therefore, most especially ...
