The Public Square

Informed Witness

We the Church are intended to serve as a voice of moral authority, gently guiding society toward decisions that serve the authentic human development of all souls.  In order to serve that role effectively, we must shape our voice as one of faith and joy, sharing the beauty of the truth of Christ and the love he bears for all humanity.  And that means that you, we, and all other Catholics must be fully formed in the truths our faith propounds, so that we whatever our walk in life we can properly defend and witness to the truth by living lives of faith-filled joy.

     Saint Monica Institute offers formation, support, and resources for Catholic workers, policy makers, professionals, home makers, students, and activists, including policy roundtables and think tanks, support networks, and workshops for:

  • all kinds of workers, including home makers, hourly and professional employees, and business leaders;
  • voters and candidates for public office;
  • directors of public and private boards; and
  • everyone called to witness or defend our faith in public.


We are gathering and developing resources for those interested or involved in any or all aspects of apologetics, history, networking, and faithful witness as professionals. In the meantime, what are your needs? Share them with us.  Perhaps we can help.
