Subscribe for daily reminders!

This Lent, include the Stations of the Cross among your daily devotions. For the second year, Thomas Aquinas College is making available to all its friends the following, five-minute video. The video features “The Franciscan Way of the Cross” (text) as read by some of the College’s students and recent graduates, accompanied by the music of Chrysostomos, a student choir. It also portrays beautiful photography of the College’s Via Dolorosa on the California campus’ lower drive —14 scenes that vividly depict Our Lord’s Passion and death.

Also known as the “Short Way of the Cross,” these reflections date back to the 16th century. Franciscan Friars have often used them, over the centuries, while preaching missions. (Note: The College also offers a a longer, photographic Stations of the Cross, complete with readings and prayers.) 

Those who sign up will receive e-mailed prayer reminders each morning, Monday through Saturday, along with a daily list of intentions prepared by Head Chaplain Rev. Paul Raftery, O.P.

Please join us in prayer throughout this Lenten Season!


Please wait for the online form to download.
Isaac Cross (’19) -- quote 2

“There’s a joy for life here you don’t get in most places, a sense of purpose, a sense of love and fellowship bound up in our common cause of seeking the truth.”

– Isaac Cross (’19)

Leominster, Massachusetts

“Thomas Aquinas College is a small college, but its reputation has spread far and wide. Because it lives off the masterpieces of thought and literature emanating from the Christian tradition of the Western world, it provides a first-rate education for a select body of talented undergraduates.”

– Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J (†)
