Prime Matters

The key task of the Church in every age is the preservation and passing on of the Christian vision of reality, so that each new generation can be given the opportunity to understand the true story of their lives. This task of incarnating and passing on eternal truth has always been important, but in our time it has become an urgent necessity.

Prime Matters, a project of educational outreach of the University of Mary, has come about in response to this urgent need of our time. We promote content that provides clear articulation of the first principles of the Catholic imaginative vision and apply them to various academic disciplines, professions, and current events.
