Community Programs

Theological education means more than Scripture study. It is relevant in all that we do. Aquinas Institute recognizes this and seeks to engage the Catholic community and the broader Christian community in conversations important to their faith lives and their understanding of Church and theology.

      In the story of Jesus' final week, we find women named and unnamed being with him and the other disciples. This day of reflection will focus on the women in John 12, 13, and 19. Who are they? What   are they doing? How does Jesus respond? Can we become these women in our daily lives? Come and   see. The day will unfold with short presentations, prayer, reflection questions, silence and discussion.
