CELEBRATING 40 yEARS
College Hosts Anniversary Gala

On September 17, 2011, Thomas Aquinas College hosted its 40th Anniversary Gala at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., the first of several celebrations throughout the year. The evening began with a Mass of Thanksgiving, at which the Most Rev. José H. Gomez served as the principal celebrant, joined at the altar by numerous concelebrants. Then, at the celebratory dinner, the Rev. Wojciech Giertych, O.P., theologian of the papal household, served as keynote speaker.

COLLEGE JOINS EFFORT TO APPEAL CONTRACEPTIVE MANDATE
Defends Religious Liberty, Natural Law

Eighteen Catholic colleges and universities — including Thomas Aquinas College — have taken a stand against a federal mandate that gravely threatens religious liberty and sound medicine. As a signatory to an appeal filed by the Alliance Defense Fund on behalf of the Cardinal Newman Society, the College is seeking a religious and moral exemption to a policy requiring employers to include sterilization and contraceptives — even those that can cause abortions — in their health-coverage plans.

AluM: MARY, MOTHER OF THE  UNBORN, AND THE  PRO-LIFE CAUSE 

From the Faith in Action blog: Greg Pfundstein (’05), Executive Director of the Chiaroscuro Foundation, recently discovered that one New York zip code has a dramatically lower abortion rate than the rest of the city — and it is home to a chapel dedicated to the Blessed Mother in her capacity as mother and defender of the unborn.
