Be transformed by the renewal of your mind

What is the Theological Academy?

The Theological Academy offers various courses and lectures, most of which are available online. The offerings are designed for anyone who wants to grow spiritually and be formed in the reasons of the faith.



Courses occur quarterly, typically on three or four successive evening sessions, from 6:30–7:45 p.m. PST. Each evening begins with a talk, includes small group discussion time, and concludes with an opportunity to ask questions and discuss the topic presented. Courses will generally be held on Zoom, though occasionally courses may be held in-person at our St. Michael Parish Hall in Portland, Oregon.


Lectures occur twice a year and are typically a stand-alone session. These gatherings typically begin with a 45-minute talk and conclude with a 15-minute Q&A. Lectures are generally held in-person at either St. Michael the Archangel Church in Portland, Oregon, or at the Old River Pastoral Center in West Linn, Oregon.
