Subscribe for daily reminders!

This Lent, include the Stations of the Cross among your daily devotions. For the third 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 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.

“The things we discover in the classroom, we recognize as true not because someone told us that they are true, but because we have reasoned to them for ourselves.”

– Thomas Cavanaugh (’18)

“This is truly a Catholic center of learning because it reverberates with the ecclesial life of faith, a faith which unfolds the richness of reason and is given fervent expression liturgically, sacramentally, and through prayer, acts of charity, and a passion for justice.”

– The Most Rev. J. Michael Miller

Archbishop of Vancouver

Former Secretary, Congregation for Catholic Education
