KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A nonprofit group from Texas is considering opening a small college in the headquarters building of the Kansas City-St. Joseph Diocese.
Diocese officials say The Walsingham Society of Christian Culture and Western Civilization wants to establish a Christ College in Kansas City.
Diocese chancellor Jude Huntz says the group is considering leasing space in the diocese's 10-story headquarters.
Brinton Smith, president of the Walsingham Society, told The Kansas City Star in an email (http://bit.ly/Yf5Ei9 ) that Christ College would offer a Catholic, seminar-based, Great Books course of study. He says the college would teach Catholic doctrine but otherwise be an independent institution.
Smith says the plan is to start small and expand as needed. But he offered few other details, saying the proposal was a work in progress.
