All new students who already enrolled will receive a full refund and those in their second and third years will continue to the completion of their program. E-mail Father Erik Pohlmeier, by clicking on the button above, or call him at (501) 664-0340 for additional information.

Due to low enrollment we will NOT begin a new class for Little Rock Theology Institute in 2017. Those already enrolled will receive a refund and those in the second and third year will continue to the completion of their program.

In the coming months there will be an evaluation of the theology institute for the future. The Diocese of Little Rock remains committed to helping adults learn their faith in a systematic way but must now consider the best way to meet this need going forward. For more information, contact Father Erik Pohlmeier, director of faith formation, at (501) 664-0340, ext. 359.

Students in their second and third year of this program attend for personal enrichment, catechist certification or to earn a bachelor's degree in theology.

The classes, which are offered monthly from September to June, are taught by diocesan staff and professors from various Catholic colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. Participants meet on Fridays from 7-10 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at St. John Catholic Center in Little Rock. 


Little Rock Theology Institute's logo comes from a photo illustration (above) of the icon "Christ Pantocrator", which means “Ruler of All,” on the interior dome of the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. This image of Christ the teacher is one of the most common representations of Jesus in Byzantine iconography. Shown holding the Scriptures Jesus blesses the beholder. His halo includes the letters “I AM,” symbolizing his divinity and referring to his words, “Before Abraham was, I AM.” The Greek letters “IC,” and “XC,” are abbreviations of the Greek words for “Jesus,” and “Christ.”
