Tolle Lege Summer Institute at Borromeo Seminary in Wickliffe

News of the Diocese

May 2, 2012

The Tolle Lege Summer Institute is a fun, faith-centered, exciting summer camp on the grounds of Borromeo Seminary in Wickliffe, Ohio.  The first session will occur in the summer of 2012.  The camp was founded to promote the pursuit of wisdom and provide a foundational understanding of Catholic philosophy and theology to young men and women in the summer before their senior year of high school.

The name, Tolle Lege, comes from the noted Catholic bishop and philosopher of the 4th century, St. Augustine.  In his classic text, the Confessions, Augustine tells of the divine call he received to a conversion of life entirely to the service of God.  St. Augustine heard the voice of a child telling him, 'Tolle lege," or "Take up and read," and immediately St. Augustine picked up a copy of St. Paul's Epistle to the Romans to read.  From that point he was baptized and he committed himself to a life lived for God, becoming a priest and ultimately a bishop and one of the most renowned Christian thinkers.
