Fr. Aquinas Guilbeau

The Dominican Province of St. Joseph nominated Father Aquinas Guilbeau, O.P., as the new Chaplain and Director of Campus Ministry at The Catholic University of America effective July 1.

Father Guilbeau teaches theology at the Dominican House of Studies, located across Michigan Avenue from Catholic University. He also serves as the prior of the community.

A native of Louisiana, Father Aquinas entered the Dominican Province of St. Joseph in 2005. After several years of pastoral work in New York City, he began doctoral studies in moral theology at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland), where he completed a dissertation on St. Thomas Aquinas’s doctrine of the common good. In addition to teaching, Father Guilbeau serves as senior editor of Aleteia.org (English edition).

Please welcome Father Aquinas as he takes on this new role with the University, working closely with our campus ministry team to provide pastoral care, sacraments, and the many programs that support our community in our faith.
