Prayers for Former Tutor John Schmitt

Please pray for a former Thomas Aquinas College tutor and the parent of several alumni, John Schmitt, who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Mr. Schmitt is the father of Julia (Six ’81), Nicholas (’82), Sr. Mary Juliana, O.Cist. (Louise ’86), Stephanie (Langley ’89), Carl (’90), Samuel (’92), and Clare (Metilly ’94). A tutor at the College from 1974 to 1979, Mr. Schmitt was instrumental in organizing the College’s first Commencement ceremony. He left the College in the spring of 1979 to found Trivium School, a Catholic and classical pre-liberal arts education for grades 7-12 in Lancaster, Mass. Trivium has sent the College nearly 50 of its alumni.

Please keep Mr. Schmitt and his family in your prayers.
