The Alcuin Institute serves the Diocese of Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma in many capacities, most of which aren’t seen by the public. So, we’re pleased to offer you the opportunity to join us for these public events; we hope you will join us as we seek to facilitate a robust Catholic culture in our Diocese!
If you have questions about any of these events, please don't hesitate to contact us!

Join the Alcuin Institute for one of our signature Socratic Convivia—our fancy way of saying food, friendship, and good conversation centered around a particular set of primary sources! In keeping with the Diocesan formation theme Revelation: Natural & Divine, we will take a look at various subjects such as the nature of truth, the harmony of faith and reason, the relationship between Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, and the tensions that seem to exist between faith and the findings of modern science.
In this first gathering, we will take a look at some texts from thinkers such as Aristotle, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Augustine to see if we can answer the age-old question “Quid est Veritas?”—“What is Truth?” As always, our conversation will be augmented with an abundance of fine food and drink, so invite a friend and “come, let us reason together!”
