What is the Dead Theologians Society?

The Dead Theologians Society is a Catholic apostolate for high school-age teens and college-age young adults. Through the Saints of yesterday, the Dead Theologians Society inspires the youth of today to become the saints of tomorrow. A special charism of the Dead Theologians Society is to pray for the release of the Souls in Purgatory. Its motto is, “Dead to the World, Alive in Christ!” This is inspired by Romans 6:11 where St. Paul tells us to be dead to sin but alive in Christ Jesus.


Meetings are twice a month on Sundays 6:00-7:45pm at the Consortium Offices 

303 East High Street

Mount Vernon, Oh 43050

The Mission

To Catechize And Evangelize Teens And Young Adults And To Pray For The Souls In Purgatory

Our Vision

Our vision is global and timeless in that we continue to effectively catechize and evangelize young people to become disciples of Jesus Christ in the Church He founded while remembering those who have passed before us.

What Do We do?

At every meeting, we, The Church Militant, are learning about and asking for the intercession of the great saints—The Church Triumphant—while praying for the Souls in Purgatory—The Church Suffering. Society members meet at their parishes and schools to learn the lives of the Saints (who are only dead by the world’s definition and are certainly alive with Jesus in Heaven). Their lives of heroic virtue continue to inspire. Using the interesting and engaging DTS format and through the examples of the Saints, young people are catechized and develop positive role models at a time when they are truly needed. In addition, members make use of time-honored Catholic prayers, devotions and sacramentals such as, Eucharistic Adoration, the Rosary, the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and more! A special charism of DTS is to pray for the Souls in Purgatory.
