The Institute offers an integrated and balanced program for the advancement of the renewal promoted by the Church, rooted in the ideals of the twentieth-century liturgical movement, the writings of recent popes, including Saint Pius X, John Paul II and Benedict XVI, and the authentic achievements of the post-conciliar era. To this end, students enjoy a mix of intense study and research; invigorating lectures and discussions; and active, intelligent participation in the Institute’s liturgical life with the daily celebration of Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours.
