Here, the Church is more than a Building on Campus.
Worship is at the heart of the mission of Aquinas College. The relationship that each member of the community has with Christ is at the core all other relationships, which creates a culture of faith, scholarship, friendship and service that is joyful and transformative. A new Mass chapel, opportunities for perpetual adoration and a dedicated Center for Faith and Culture provide a place for members of the campus and the greater Nashville community to grow in knowledge, love and service of the Gospel.
“The Aquinas culture of faith will have a profound effect on the personal life of each student, on the life they promote within their families, and their endeavors in the professional world. I envision their lives of faith as being a light that illumines the broader culture and has a lasting effect on society.”Read Mother Anne Marie's Story
Center for Faith & Culture Goal: $1,000,000
The Aquinas Center for Faith & Culture was founded in the 2012 to serve as a catalyst for the
revival and renewal of Catholic life and culture through the promotion of Catholic literature,
art, music and film. Through various media, the Center serves as a means of evangelizing the
modern world. Continued support for the Center will expand its reach on campus and to the
greater Nashville community.
Adoration Chapel Goal: $100,000
The Corpus Christi Perpetual Adoration Chapel was dedicated in 2014 and is open to the Nashville community for private prayer and devotion 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Chapel Goal: $6,000,000
The College community has quickly outgrown St. Jude’s Mass Chapel on campus and hopes to build a Mass chapel that will accommodate weekday and weekend Masses for students on campus.
Campus Ministry Staff
The Campus Ministry Staff provides students, faculty, staff and friends of the College with year round opportunities for prayer, ongoing formation, presentations, Bible studies, service and mission trips, and retreats that encourage a faithful, integrated relationship with Christ.
