St. Thomas of Villanova Celebration
Each fall, the Villanova community begins the academic year with a celebration honoring St. Thomas of Villanova, the 16th-century Augustinian bishop of Valencia, Spain, and patron of the University. This tradition continues in 2021 with several special events.
Saturday, October 2, 2021: Day of Service
Description: Students, faculty, staff, alumni and families will partner with community agencies to perform service in neighborhoods throughout the region. Villanovans outside of Greater Philadelphia are encouraged to participate in the Day of Service by identifying opportunities closer to home. Please visit the Villanova University Alumni Association website for more information.
Sunday, October 3, 2021: Community Liturgy
Join Father Peter and fellow Villanovans in St Thomas of Villanova Church for the return of our annual liturgy to celebrate the culmination of the Day of Service at 5 pm. All are welcome to join in this communal celebration.
