From the Church Triumphant
College Displays Saintly Letters

November is the month in which we remember those who have come before us in faith, beginning with All Saints Day. In keeping with this ancient tradition, Thomas Aquinas College is displaying some of its most sacred treasures — 14 framed letters written by great saints throughout the last 500 years.

FACULTY LECTURES ONLINE
Decaen on the Old Testament, O’Reilly on Flannery O’Connor

Two members of the College’s teaching faculty have recently presented lectures on campus. On October 12, Dr. Christopher Decaen gave an informal “Tutor Talk” entitled “The ‘Jesus(s)’ of the Old Testament, Part I.”  Then, on October 15, at the annual Legatus-Aquinas Forum, Vice President for Development Paul J. O’Reilly spoke about Catholic author Flannery O’Connor and her story “The Enduring Chill.” Both talks are available on the College’s website.
