Directors of the Institutes live and work in the community and by virtue of the offices they hold become missionaries in the world to transmit these values in a way that promotes truth, goodness and beauty and in so doing, restores Christ in civilization.
To protect, preserve and proclaim the truths of the Christian Faith, as given to the Apostles by Jesus Christ.
Our Core Values
Truth. Obedience. Fidelity. Charity. Hope. Joy. Community.
At the center of Veritatis Splendor will be a grand oratory, conceived in the architecture and structure of the Italian cathedrals erected in places like Siena, Florence and Assisi. It will also be a place of pilgrimage for those who want to study, pray and revitalize their family and individual spiritual life. The oratory, once established, will be maintained by a community of priests. The priests will serve the community of Veritatis Splendor and offer public ministry within the diocese in accordance with the benevolence of the local Bishop.
Veritatis Splendor will be centered around seven foundational institutes rooted in prayer, guided by philosophy, and supported by an Apostolic Constitution.
These institutes will include liberal education including a K-12 and university program as well as institutes on law, life, human rights, liberty, media and culture. Each institute will have an Executive Director who will lead and administer the specific mission of the institute.
Veritatis Splendor will also be a physical home for those who are called to serve and grow the mission and vision.
There will be recreational facilities for residents and guests including pools, archery and gun ranges, equestrian center, fishing piers, hunting areas and sports fields.
