Theology
 /  Theology

The Theology Department embraces Jesus’ command to teach “all that I have commanded” and seeks to engage students in the authentic life, teaching, and tradition of the Catholic faith. Each course develops an understanding and appreciation of the richness of Catholic teaching while preparing students to live as Catholic Christians in society today. The Theology Department recognizes that not all STM students are from the Catholic tradition and invites all students to reflect on various faith and religious practices.

Students will:

  • Receive an overview of the basics of the Roman Catholic faith
  • Be encouraged to contemplate the traditions of the Catholic Church as they grow in their own faith as teenagers and young adults
  • Examine theology through the study of the Creed, sacraments,  Scripture, prayer, morality, social justice, the Church, the nature of the human person, and other religious traditions
  • Develop an understanding of the standards of human behavior established by God and taught by the Catholic Church
  • Explore the different religious traditions of the world

Congratulations to the Cavalier Powerlifting Team! On Saturday, seven Cavaliers competed in a powerlifting meet at Cudahy High School. Five of the seven athletes medaled, and two of those students are going to state!

“Coach Litscher and I are proud of these student athletes for the hard work and dedication to training," said powerlifting coach and STM science teacher Mike Fricke. "Strength training has a unique way of instilling confidence and growth in young men and women, and in the end that is the most important outcome anyone would want of our students at St. Thomas More High School.”

Stay tuned for more updates on our powerlifting team as some of them compete in Germantown in February and then at the state meet in Appleton on March 2 and 3.

Pictured: Dianeli, Jorge (qualified for state), Steve (won a 3rd place medal), Jeff (won a 2nd place medal), Evan, David (won a 2nd place medal) and Dylan (qualified for state).
