"The parables of Jesus seek to draw one into the Kingdom, and they challenge us to act and to live from the gift which is experienced therein. But we do not want parables. We want precepts and we want programs. We want good precepts and we want sensible programs. We are frightened by the lonely silences within the parables." [John Dominic Crossan, In Parables - The Challenge of the Historical Jesus, Harper and Row, 1973,82]

Aquinas Academy is Changing

JThomas Aquinas

Aquinas Academy is transitioning from courses on-site to resources on-line.  A new web site is being built at the moment to accommodate this transition.  It is expected that this new web site will be up and running by mid-December 2021.
We had hoped to have some more courses this year before that transition was made. However, the long lockdown has made that impractical.  There will be no more Aquinas Academy events on-site this year. Next year we will hold some celebratory events to mark the ending of the onsite phase of the Aquinas Academy from 1945 to 2021. Seventy six very fruitful years!

A number of people need to be especially acknowledged – eg Sr Marie Biddle RSJ MA MTh.
The celebratory events will be held in the second half of 2022 as Michael Whelan will be away on sabbatical in the first half of the year.
