"God has left us abandoned in time. God and humanity are like two lovers who have missed their rendezvous. Each is there before the time, but each at a different place, and they wait and wait and wait. He stands motionless, nailed to the spot for the whole of time. She is distraught and impatient. But alas for her if she gets tired and goes away. The crucifixion of Christ is the image of the fixity of God. God is attention without distraction. One must imitate the patience and humility of God." (Simone Weil, "The Fathers Silence" in The Simone Weil Reader, edited by George A Panichas, David McKay Company, 1977, 424-25)

Postponement of Courses


Upcoming scheduled courses at Aquinas Academy have been suspended. (Courses which have started will continue to completion.)

The human family is facing an unprecedented and most serious crisis with the coronavirus. We must be mindful of the common good, always weighing our actions in terms of their possible ramifications and effects on other citizens. Let us cooperate fully with the efforts at “social distancing”.

With this in mind, we have made the decision to suspend courses at Aquinas Academy for the foreseeable future.

When it is appropriate to re-commence courses we will announce that here.

Let us look out for each other, using phone and social media to keep in touch, encouraging each other during these difficult days.

Let us pray: Loving God watch over all the peoples of our world during this special time of trial. Give wisdom to those in leadership and special strength to those who care for the sick. Deepen our faith that our trust in You may not falter. Open our hearts that we may be generous in our response to those in special need. Enliven us with the Spirit of Jesus that we may bring His Presence wherever we go.
