Message from the rector for the feast of St. Thomas – March 8
Dear Professors, Students, and Employees of the PUST,
The Italian Prime Minister signed yesterday the new DPCM, indicating the new anti-Covid rules that should start from 6th March. According to them, “Conferences, conventions, and other events are suspended, except for those held by remote mode” (art. 13).
Following the new legislation and considering the health situation in Rome, we have to modify the way we will celebrate our Saint Thomas feast on Monday, 8th March.
The Mass will be celebrated in the church at 9.00. It will be presided over by Cardinal Marc Ouellet. Unfortunately, a very limited number of people will be able to attend it – academic authorities, major officials, ASPUST leadership, and employees’ representatives. The event will be livestreamed.
At 10.30 we will continue our feast with the conference by Fr Giuseppe Barzaghi OP, entitled “Mythos – Logos – Anagogia – una strada tomista ad un rinnovamento della teologia” which will be followed by the response presented by Fr Serge-Thomas Bonino OP. This part will take place entirely online.
Let’s hope that it is the last academic feast our University celebrates in a remote mode.
With my prayer for each of you,
Michał Paluch O.P.
