About the Institute

No matter at what level you find yourself in your faith journey, the Institute for Catholic Studies has a course to help you grow in your faith... on YOUR time!

Our Institute's History

Our school was founded in September 1995 by Bishop Emeritus John J. Nevins as the Blessed Edmund Rice school to prepare lay men and women for service in the Church through a program of formal theological education and spiritual enrichment.

In 2014, the Blessed Edmund Rice was renamed The Institute for Catholic Studies and Formation and was placed under the leadership of Dr. Kathy Kleinlein. A partnership was formed with Franciscan University of Steubenville to offer Master’s courses.

Let us be your guide on this journey.

We here at the Institute are committed to equipping the next generation of teachers and evangelists to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and supporting those already in the trenches. We serve the parishes by providing competent, spirit-filled leaders grounded in the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith.
