MTS Week 2

The second week of the Monastic Theological Studies program is in full swing! This week Fr. Thomas Pietri is guiding the sisters through the book of Romans with the help of St. Thomas Aquinas. Actually, the course is called "Reading St. Paul Through the Eyes of St. Thomas".  Also during these two weeks the sisters have been giving presentations on the two papers they wrote this past year for last year's courses.
