‘Follow the Right Trail,’ Says New Wyoming Catholic College President

Dr. Kevin Roberts encouraged students to be active Christians at his inauguration as the second president of Wyoming Catholic College.

The president has big plans for the College, as we reported earlier, and he is excited about the future.  He shared the story of the College’s founding, and discussed how students should strive to be missionaries.

"We must follow the right trail… yet the right trail is often narrow, rocky, and steep. In a word, we must be active, not passive, Christians."

The trail analogy is especially appropriate for Wyoming Catholic College students, who take a three-week backpacking trip in August and a one-week winter adventure in January as a part of the College’s leadership program for freshmen.

Acknowledging the challenges the students will face in secular society, Dr. Roberts emboldened them to live a life of authenticity.

"We must also not be afraid to speak up publicly… and to connect the profoundly thorough, integrated, faithfully Catholic classical education we offer here with the Church’s need for the lay faithful to be involved in temporal affairs; in the public square."

Wyoming Catholic College is recommended by The Cardinal Newman Society in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
