We are a group of priests, religious, and laypeople headquartered at the Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. Technically speaking, Pastori Fido is a project of the Delaplane Initiative for Preaching Excellence, funded (for the moment) by a grant from the Lilly Endowment's Clergy Renewal program. Our aim is to provide Catholic preachers "in the field" with the resources they need to deliver awesome homilies every day.

The Aquinas Institute is a Dominican institution of graduate study and the seminary for both the Central and Southern Provinces of the Order of Preachers. We're the only school in the world that offers a doctoral degree in Catholic preaching (which we think is a nice credential to have for folks running a project like Pastori Fido ;-). If you're interested in taking your preaching studies much deeper than our offerings go, then check out our D.Min. program here.
