After graduating from Catholic University of America in 1998, he went on to earn a master's degree in theology and a doctorate in pastoral theology from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family in Rome.

When did St. Athanasius become a Doctor of the Church?

Doctor of the Church, St. Athanasius. When he returned to Alexandria in 319, he was consecrated as a deacon and resumed his service to Alexander, who had become a bishop. The Catholic Church, recently acknowledged by the Roman Empire, was already facing a new set of internal threats. Athanasius, now in his fifties, was called upon to help repel these attacks from within Egypt's Christian community.

Athanasius became known for his austerity and piety. He practiced what he preached by living on only bread and water for several days at a time. He also spent many hours in prayer. It is said that once when he was praying in church under the dome where the altar now stands, he received a message from God through an angel: "Go into what is left of Persia" (the area around modern-day Iran) "and convert it too." Athanasius took this message to be a call to fight against Christianity's opponents from outside Egypt's borders as well. Over the next few years, he led prayers and gave speeches across Egypt, urging its Christians to remain true to their faith in times of persecution.

He died in 373 at the age of 70. Pope Pious II declared him a saint in 1048. He is regarded as one of the most important doctors of the early Church.
