About Us

Dedicated Educators


We're changing to meet the demands of a new paradigm in pastoral studies & requirements for religious education. Sanctus  Theological Institute has grown smaller since it's founding in 1998. Owing to the economy & our presence as a leader in On-Line Education we seek to refine our service to those who seek a more focused  religious education.

First-Rate Curriculum


We're a wellspring of inspiration and encouragement; providing opportunities or educational and spiritual growth. Founded in late 1998, Along with our Board of Advisors we are without jurisdictional or denominational agenda, preferring to serve Individuals and small faith communities on an individual basis.

In 1998-99, STI began as a small seminary for those seeking programs tailored to their lives,needs and ministries. Fr. Jim was completing his own studies for the Ministry. As an Emmy Winning Documentary Maker. With laptop in hand, he studied where he could! Professors were willing to assist him and even help him form a new means of study. Travel opened doors to well known scholars and clergy, intrigued by this new paradigm in education.
