Dead Theologians Society

At the Dead Theologians Society, the saints of yesterday inspire the youth of today to be the saints of tomorrow.  A typical meeting includes fellowship, prayer, a talk on the life of a saint, and discussion. If you’re a teen who’s looking for something more, to help you deepen your spiritual life, this is the group for you! 

Teens qualify for membership after they’ve attended three consecutive meetings or five total meetings. After a teen has participated in the required number of meetings he or she will be officially enrolled in DTS. Members are welcome to bring guests, and new members are enrolled year-round. 

Lifetime membership requires a one-time due of $50; scholarships are available for parishioners in which the $50 would be a financial hardship. 

Upon enrolling, memberships will receive: 

  • Membership Card
  • The official Dead Theologians Society black hoodie
  • A pull-chain combat rosary – the same model issued to the Swiss Guard
  • Dead Theologians Society Brown Scapular
