“Aquinas College has a rich history. For 60 years, Aquinas has maintained the same central focus: a desire to serve the Church through the formation of individuals who are prepared to be witnesses to truth and charity,” Sister Cecilia Anne said. “We want to reflect on this history and give thanks to God. Friends and alumni of Aquinas College are invited to contribute to this anniversary year by sharing their memories of Aquinas.”
