In honor of the feast day of our patron saint, Thomas Aquinas, we will host Fr. Raymund Snyder, O.P as a special guest speaker on Monday, January 28 and Tuesday, January 29. He will speak in the main church at 7:00 p.m. both evenings. Fr. Raymund, a native Wichitan who graduated from Bishop Carroll,
is a Dominican Friar. He currently serves as a parochial vicar at St. Patrick Parish in Columbus, Ohio. Prior to serving in Columbus he worked for the Thomistic Institute as the promoter for student leadership and oversaw the composition of the “Credo” a multimedia RCIA teaching program based on the theology of St. Thomas Aquinas. He studied philosophy and classics at the University of Notre Dame and entered the Order of Preachers in 2010. He holds an STB and MDiv from the Dominican House of Studies and a licentiate in philosophy from the Catholic University of America. His academic interests include the philosophy of God, participation, and the theology of grace. Fr. Raymund is considered a Thomist scholar and he will share with us some of his extensive knowledge of the teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas. All parishioners are invited and encouraged to attend one or both evenings.
