Resources for Lay Leaders, Parishes
and Catholic organizations
The Aquinas Center is a resource to parishes, Catholic organizations and lay leaders within the Archdiocese of Atlanta. Feel free to reach out to Aquinas Center and let us know how we can serve you.
For those lay leaders seeking Catechist Certification, our free events are applicable for credit.
We serve Adult Faith Formation Leaders providing speaking experts to travel to your parishes addressing a variety of topics as far-ranging as immigration, the role of laity in the Church, the wonder of cathedrals, art and Saint Francis, end of life issues, a Catholic leadership model, and Catholic social justice.
How to Request a Speaker
If you are an adult education director, deacon, or other leader of a Catholic entity and would like to request one of our speakers, please fill out the below form. We will then contact a lecturer to see if they are available for the event at the requested time. If you wish to make a donation to this program to help pay for future programs this is of course welcomed.
"The presentation by Dr. Steffen Loesel, Assistant Professor of Theology at Emory University, The Vocation and Desire of Therese of Lisieux, was very well received by OLA parishioners and our neighbors. Dr. Loesel’s presentation provided details and commentary that can only be achieved by a scholar devoted to the study of his subject and the skill to teach it."
