ABOUT OUR FACULTY
About Our Founder,
Jonathan Arrington spent six years in Catholic seminaries in Germany, Italy, France, and America. After he left, he pursued doctoral studies in Patristic Theology at the Augustinianum, in Rome, Italy. He has sung Church Slavonic in the choir at Sant’Antonio l’abate Russian Byzantine Catholic Church in Rome for most of the last seven years. He also worked as a translator for l’Osservatore Romano, and translated documents from various modern languages into Latin for officials at the CDF, Roman Rota, and Apostolic Signatura. Finally and most enjoyably, he taught History, Theology, Latin, and Greek in Rome for Christendom College, Thomas More College, Newman College Ireland, and the Angelicum.
He now resides in Colorado with his beloved wife and their four children.
His interest in and enthusiasm for the active use of Latin and Ancient Greek as the best method to learn and appreciate the genius of those languages stems in large part from felicitous friendships with several of our age’s most brilliant classicists: David Morgan (+), Luigi Miraglia, and Patrick Owens. In addition, he once shared a conversation (in Latin, of course) and a cappuccino with the renowned Nancy (Annula) Lewellyn, beside his favorite Roman Basilica, Santa Maria Maggiore. That experience whet his appetite for the promotion of Latin immersion in Catholic schools.
Mr. Daniel Campbell
Daniel Campbell graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Preprofessional Studies from the University of Notre Dame. After graduation, he worked in medical research for five years in preparation for medical school. However, God called him to a different life upon entering the Catholic Church, receiving the sacraments of Confirmation and First Eucharist in 2008. Daniel then completed his Master's Degree in Systematic Theology at the Augustine Institute in 2012, focusing his studies on the works of St. Thomas Aquinas. He is currently the Coordinator of Curriculum Development and a teacher at the Denver Catholic Biblical and Catechetical Schools for the Lay Division of St. John Vianney Theological Seminary, where he teaches Sacred Scripture and the writings of Aristotle and Aquinas. As a recent convert, he remains astounded at the breadth and depth of truth, beauty, and goodness in the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, and looks forward to sharing in this with others through teaching the theological and philosophical greats. Daniel is married, and he and his wife have two children, with a third on the way.
Mrs. Julia Six
Julia Six graduated from Thomas Aquinas College with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts. She taught for several years at Trivium School, a small independent Catholic school, founded by her parents, which focuses on classical education and the arts. Mrs. Six has spent over twenty-five years homeschooling her nine children and teaching classes in homeschool co-ops to children of all ages. In 2011, she received a Master’s Degree in Systematic Theology from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia. She taught courses in theology at DeSales University and St. Joseph’s College of Maine, and worked as a Director of Religious Education. She and her husband, Michael, have worked to promote the beautiful musical heritage of the Church - Gregorian chant and sacred polyphony - through teaching, starting a choir, and now singing in the choir at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church.
