Welcome to the the Denver Catholic Biblical and Catechetical Schools (part of the St. John Vianney Lay Division)!!

We've assembled a first-rate team of experienced instructors who have a deep love for Scripture and the Catholic faith. Through lectures, small-group discussions, and weekly coursework, our master instructors will guide you through the prayerful, organic, and systematic presentation of the Catholic Faith, contained both in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition (Catechism of the Catholic Church).

The Catechetical School offers a two-year (four semester) study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church entitled, “The Ladder of Ascent.” (This course was previously known as “Pillars.”) Under the guidance of an experienced and talented instructor, students make an in-depth study of the four areas of the Catechism:
Part 1: The Profession of Faith (the Creed)
Part 2: The Celebration of the Christian Mystery (the Sacraments)
Part 3: Life in Christ (Christian Morality)
Part 4: Christian Prayer

Imitating the successful structure and format of the Denver Catholic Biblical School, "The Ladder of Ascent" class consists both of lectures and small group discussions for further enrichment and understanding of the material. In addition to class time, students also complete reading assignments for homework and an open-book take-home test at the end of each semester. At the end of the two-year program, the student is awarded a "Certificate of Catechetical Studies."
