Main Events

Theology Department Opening Prayer Service – please join us to welcome in the new school year in prayer and thanksgiving in early September – date to come soon. If you would like to participate as a reader or musician, please email Kristin Williams at We would really appreciate it!

Intramural Soccer – If you would like to join the theology co-ed soccer team, email Kristin Williams for a waiver as soon as possible because the waivers need to be in by Sept 2nd. Even if you have no experience (like the rest of us), this’ll be a fun time. And we need all the people we can get! The games are on campus during the week in the evening.

What to keep on your schedule:

St. Thomas of Villanova Day of Service – this is an outstanding opportunity to work together and spend a day serving the community around us. The actual event is Saturday September 27th but it’s never to early to sign up here. Search for “Graduate Theology Students” under the group list. If our group isn’t listed yet, it should be processed by Monday evening. You can find more info about the day here. Family and significant others are also welcome to participate.

Thursday, Aug 28th

Feast Day of St Augustine, the son of St. Monica. . . as well as the man from whom our university bears its tradition. Mass will be celebrated at 12:05 in the church. Learn more about him and his mother here (and find out what he’s the patron saint of!). And then check out the heritage and mission of Villanova for how the university has carried on the life of its father.
