Ora et Labora (Latin phrase for "Pray and Work")
The University of Saint Thomas is a community of learning, faith and service. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we support and challenge one another to treasure and manifest the presence of God in the world around us.
The Cathedral of Saint Paul is one of the largest and most historic churches in the United States. Its architectural grandeur and prominent site make it an integral part of the landscape of the capital city of Minnesota—whose name derives from the title of this great building.
This historic site has been a cornerstone of the Catholic faith in Minneapolis since 1914. It was the first basilica built in America.
Throughout the history of St. Catherine University, founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, it has been dedicated as a campus community to our Roman Catholic heritage and identity.
