What difference can I make in the world?

At Aquinas Institute, we challenge our students to consider life's most ultimate questions and to respond to these questions from the perspective of faith.  In our study of the Word of God and our reflection upon the world in all of its complexity, we come to a deeper knowledge and understanding of Jesus Christ.

How am I called to share in the preaching of the Good News of Jesus Christ? 

Our study is at the service of what Dominicans call the "Holy Preaching." The Holy Preaching is not just what we proclaim from the pulpit, but what we express together in our shared life of responding  to God's call. St. Mark tells us, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation."
