The Centre for Catholic Studies, here in Sydney, Australia, offers year-round courses on Catholic Church teachings, based on the philosophy and theology of the "Angelic Doctor", St Thomas Aquinas.

CTS was founded in 1985 for the purpose of providing a sound and profound education in philosophy and kindred subjects for the people of Sydney, and Australia in general, continuing the work begun by the late Dr A.M. Woodbury, SM, PhD, STD, a Marist priest and a leading Australian proponent of Thomism.

Courses commence in February, and follow the timetable of the university academic year.
