All College

Please pray for the following members of the Thomas Aquinas College community.

For Peter DeLuca (’87), who is seriously ill with a lung infection.

For Deacon Robert Ellis, the father of Tom Ellis (’98), Mother Madeleine Marie of St. Joseph (Mary Kay ’99), and grandfather of Andrew (’22): Deacon Ellis died on December 12, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

For Paul Keating (’98), who passed away unexpectedly todaon December 7: Mr. Keating is the brother of Gene (’91) and Eileen (Douglass ’93).

For Irene Grimm, who is on hospice care with congestive heart failure: Mrs. Grimm and her late husband, Bill, could fairly be called the “parents of Thomas Aquinas College.” Two of their 17 children were in the first Freshman Class, and 12 more would follow. They are also the grandparents of 59 alumni and 10 current students, as well as the great-grandparents of 4 current students. From the very beginning, Grimms have formed the backbone of the Thomas Aquinas College Choir, and two sons currently serve as its directors, one on each coast.

For Margaret Dale, mother of Martin (’88) and Michael (’91): Mrs. Dale is in palliative care at home and facing the final stage of her earthly sojourn. May her last days be filled with consolations, and may the angels wing her quickly to her heavenly reward!
