The Eucharistic Revival: How the Bread from Heaven can heal and transform our lives and families with Br. John Paul Puschautz

Monday, June 24, 2024, 7 pm in the Chapel

What have I done to celebrate the National Eucharistic Revival? In this talk we’ll explore the roots of the Eucharist in Scripture and Tradition in order to see how our relationship with Jesus in the Eucharist as the source and summit of our Catholic faith can revive our spirituality. 

Br. John Paul Puschautz is our student brother for the next year. He will spent August in Mexico learning Spanish. 

What it Means to Worship: St. Thomas Aquinas on the Virtue of Religion with Fr. Thomas Aquinas Pickett, O.P.

Tuesday, July 2, 2024, 7 pm
Chapel 

What are we doing when we go to Mass? Why should we pray? How is every Christian a priest? One of the most important virtues according to Saint Thomas Aquinas is called “the virtue of religion.” And in a special way, this virtue can help to explain all of these questions and more. Come learn about this largely forgotten virtue and how it can help you on your path to Christian happiness.

Fr. Thomas Aquinas Pickett, O.P. is working on a Doctorate in Sacred Theology at the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. Originally from Washington State, he enjoys running, playing board games, and nerding out with the theology of St. Thomas Aquinas.
