Welcome to the Aquinas Center!
The Aquinas Center at Candler School of Theology is a Catholic thought center that provides community programming and educational resources to a growing Catholic Church. Uniquely situated in the dynamic landscape of the Archdiocese of Atlanta and the ecumenical space of Emory University, the Aquinas Center provides a Catholic voice and a Catholic perspective to address theological issues of our time.
Founded in the Dominican tradition, the Aquinas Center is committed to providing gathering spaces for dialogue that expand knowledge and deepen faith in God.
I am thrilled to be a part of the Aquinas Center community! In this academic year, our programs will explore synodality, and women and theosis. Our Major Catholic Speaker event on October 19th will celebrate the life and impact of John August Swanson, who’s original painting The Procession (1982) is in the Vatican Museum’s Collection of Modern Religious Art. Our work with CLIP will continue as we discuss the role of laity for the future of the Church in partnership with the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
As we celebrate our 35th anniversary throughout this upcoming year, we invite you to be a part of our community, to explore our various website resources and to attend our programs. I hope to see you in the year ahead!
Wishing you peace and blessings,
Interim Executive Director/Business and Events Manager
