Location: St. Thomas Aquinas Church Library, 401 Alderman Rd.
Join us as we welcome our special guests, who will introduce us to St. Aelred's classic yet deeply refreshing short book, Spiritual Friendship, which will help us see how our human friendships on Earth open a pathway to Christ and eternal friendship in Heaven. All are invited, so bring a friend or plan to meet someone new. RSVP appreciated but not required, and the St. Anselm Institute will even buy this book for you (!): email Dr. Jocelyn Moore, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Tapas! and St. Teresa of Avila!!
Our new Taste for Friendship dinner series for undergrad/grad students will continue on Friday, Nov. 17 at 6:30pm in UVA OpenGrounds (on the Corner, across from the White Spot). We're serving a free Spanish tapas-theme dinner, which we're pairing with several writings on the theme of friendship by St. Teresa of Avila. Several faculty experts will attend, so prior experience not expected or required. All students are invited to this dinner, so email our Postdoctoral fellow Jocelyn Moore to help us with our dinner count. For a pre-dinner sampling of St. Teresa's writing on friendship, take a look at these selections.
 
 
 
 
 
We're starting our fall Taste for Friendship dinner series for undergrad/grad students on Friday, Oct. 13 at 6:30pm in UVA OpenGrounds (on the Corner, across from the White Spot). We'll serve a North African-themed dinner, which we're pairing with several writings on the theme of friendship by St. Augustine.  Several faculty experts will attend, so prior experience with St. Augustine not required. You should know that St. Augustine knew a lot about both bad (!) and good friends during his life, so everyone definitely is invited.  Reservations recommended, but not required. Email Institute Postdoc Fellow Jocelyn Moore (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and let her know you're interested in attending or helping with some of the dinner prep.
 
For those interested, here are several St. Augustine readings on friendship.
