The Oxcart

What is "The Oxcart"?

The Oxcart is named in honor of St. Thomas Aquinas. Nicknamed the "Dumb Ox" by his classmates because of his shyness and size, Thomas went on to become the patron saint of scholars and widely regarded as one of the greatest minds of all time. The Oxcart invokes St. Thomas as its patron and will be a place to learn, be inspired and fortified in the faith. While the primary focus of the Oxcart is Catholic education, it will also be a collection of essays, facts about our Catholic faith and a place to find answers to parents questions.
