Imagine a place where every person is committed to perfecting the intelle ctual, moral and theological virtues in their life as well as helping others to do the same.
Belmont Abbey College is a special place and almost everyone who has ever attended or visited our college will tell you that it is so. Our commitment as a Catholic college is a guarantee to people of all faiths of how they will be treated because of what we believe. And although each of us has our own flaws and weaknesses, we are committed to meet each person as Christ, in persona Christi. This is the Benedictine way. By praying, working, listening, and welcoming, the Monks teach us about the Rule of St. Benedict and the way of love. We are called to seek the Truth so that we may know, do, and accept God’s will in all things.That is the nature of virtue, the habit of doing good. This journey of excellence begins anew each day with our simple morning offering and dedication to carry out the small, practical, tasks of our daily lives with love.
I believe that God is calling the entire Belmont Abbey family to be truly excellent so that in all things God may be glorified. Your reading this page is no accident, so I invite you to visit us and experience first hand Belmont Abbey’s 130 year tradition of hospitality, personal attention and teaching excellence.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
Dr. William K. Thierfelder
