Tilburg School of Catholic Theology
TST's motto is "Thinking Faith". Faith and religion are no longer as widespread in our society as they were, but remain relevant social factors. On an individual level, spirituality and faith are still vitally important to many, and faith and religion continue inspire and comfort people.
The study of theology is broad and profound and includes both personal and academic formation.
