January 26 is the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas.
Saint Thomas Aquinas was a 13th century Dominican priest, philosopher, and theologian. As a Doctor of the Church, he has been given the title “Angelic Doctor” and is the patron of Catholic universities and schools. St. Thomas reflected the Dominican ideal. He was a true contemplative who shared the fruits of contemplation with others.
Did You know that St. Thomas wrote music?
The most popular Hymns written by him are the Eucharistic Hymns: O Salutaris, Tantum Ergo and Pange Lingua.
May our Patron Saint continue to be inspiration for our Parish and intercede for us.
A plenary indulgence is granted the Christian faithful who devoutly make a visit to their parish church on the feast day of its patron saint.
“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.” –St. Thomas Aquinas
