In keeping with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ suggestion that churches offer Masses for the Holy Father before he resigns on February 28, the College will offer a Mass in behalf of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday, February 27, at 11:30 a.m. The Mass, which will take place in Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel, will use the prayers and readings  that the USCCB has specifically selected for the occasion, in gratitude to the Holy Father for his eight years of service as the successor to St. Peter.
“Thomas Aquinas College is very grateful to the Pope for his wise and holy leadership, and we are happy to have this opportunity to gather and pray for him,” Dean Brian Kelly said in a message sent out to all students, faculty, and staff. “I hope you will be able to join us on Wednesday. If you cannot make it at that time I encourage you to remember him in your prayers.”
