"Wisdom in God's Country"

The good folks at Wyoming Catholic College, whom we are very close to after having lived in Wyoming for three years, have teamed up with Grassroots Films in order to make a 7-minute promotional film about life at the College. This extraordinary video takes advantage of the breathtaking Wyoming views, which is the setting not only for student recreation, but also for much of their education.

When I was the DRE in Jackson, we would host the students on their winter outdoor trip, and I can tell you from first-hand experience that these students really do become who the video makes them out to be through the education that they receive-- intelligent, faithful Catholics, who will go on to be leaders in the career fields they choose to take up (yes, they're real people, many of whom aren't going to become priests or nuns-- though, many are, as well...).

Wyoming Catholic just graduated their first class this past spring (with an almost 0% attrition rate), and have a reknowned faculty and phenomenal curriculum. It is so good in fact, that only three years after they opened, WCC made the prestigious Newman List-- the Cardinal Newman Society list of outstanding (and authentically Catholic) Catholic Colleges.

For anyone considering where to go for college, or perhaps where to send their child for an authentically Catholic liberal arts education, I'd highly recommend sending them to Wyoming Catholic College.

Let's watch the video:

  1. Oh, if only I could be 18 again... what a wonderful blessing for the students! Thank you WCC for your important work and ministry.

  2. I too, wish I could be 18 again. Thank you WCC!

  3. WOW!!! BTW, there is no "k" in the highlighted word "renowned."

  4. The Benedictines have nailed it here. This is the type of liberal arts education I should have had - the classics, applied.

  5. That was an extremely impressive video. I am the richer for watching it. Thank you.

  6. There is still hope for mankind! What an inspirational story especially at the time of Advent.
