New Catholic college may open in Kansas City

Catholic World News - July 08, 2013

Christ College, an initiative of the Dallas-based Walsingham Society of Christian Culture and Western Civilization, will offer courses in Latin and theology in Kansas City as a pilot project this fall and may offer a full college curriculum beginning in 2014.

“Christ College is a curriculum that, in addition to the Great Books curriculum, has at its heart a loyalty to the Church’s Magisterium in all disciplines of the college,” said Jude Huntz, chancellor of the Diocese of Kansas City - St. Joseph, Missouri. “Interest in the Catholic community is high, and the economy is improving. So, from a material point of view, the time is right.”

“From a spiritual outlook, the time is also right,” he added. “The Church and the nation need a renewal of Catholic higher education.”

    Is there a point in multiplying the number of Catholic colleges, when the existing ones are underendowed? As I recall, there's a good one not far from KC called Benedictine?
