Paul VI

We are named after Blessed Pope Paul VI (Pope from 1963-1978) who completed the Second Vatican Council and began the implementation of its teachings in the Church. Inspired by his vision of catechesis we seek to "deepen, consolidate, nourish and make ever more mature" the faith of our students through "a catechesis full of gospel vitality and in a language suited to people and circumstances" (Pope Paul VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi 54)

Foundation provides scholarships for Paul VI students.

Through the generosity of the Virginia Celeste Piontek Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund, qualified students will be eligible for scholarship assistance. This fund, established in memory of Virginia Piontek, provides scholarship assistance to students attending the Pontifical Paul VI Institute (for Catechetical and Pastoral Studies) in St. Louis, Missouri where students grow in their love and knowledge of Jesus Christ, the teachings of the church, and in their ability to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to the contemporary world. To donate to this fund, please visit
