As a champion of impactful dialog, Albertus Magnus College continues its annual St. Thomas Aquinas Lecture Series (Thomas Talks), named after the Dominican scholar who challenged individuals to seek truth and knowledge.  Since its founding in 1925 by the Dominican Sisters of Peace, the College has cherished the pursuit of truth in all its dimensions.  The College uses this lecture series as a lens through which it “responds to the academic needs and ethical challenges of its students and society.”  The series is made possible through the generosity of the Marie Louise Bianchi ’31 Fund.

Ann Garrido is Associate Professor of Homiletics and Director of Spiritual Formation of the MAPS-CGS program at Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, Missouri. A lay Catholic woman, she holds both a Master of Divinity and a Doctorate of Ministry in Preaching from the Institute. Her teaching, research, and public speaking have focused on Christian conflict management and administration; cultivating Catholic identity in sponsored institutions; the practice of Catholic preaching; developing methods of forming candidates for ministry; and examining the gifts of children’s contextual theology in the contemporary church. She is a recognized formation leader for the National Association of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and a consultant/mediator with Triad Consulting Group.
