A Blessing for Finals Week, Fall 2018

A Blessing for Finals Week, Fall 2018

Posted: December 14, 2018

Final examinations were held at Thomas Aquinas College this past week, and students supplemented their academic preparation with various forms of spiritual preparation — including seeking the intercession of the College’s beloved patron, St. Thomas Aquinas.

At 8:30 a.m. each morning in Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel, students received a blessing from one of the College’s three chaplains with a first-class relic of St. Thomas. This campus tradition, which takes place during finals week every semester, allows students to ask for St. Thomas’ prayers in an intimate, tangible way.

Below are photos from this week’s blessings …
