College of St. Thomas More: Congratulations.

I am a few days late on this but --- congratulations to all 10 College of St Thomas More graduates, and to the College for the largest gathering of founders, fellows, students, and friends in a College-owned building. The fact that the building was the new Christ the Teacher chapel is all the better. It was a great day for all of us connected with one of Fort Worth's finest institutions.

What! No more Mass in a garage? Well!

Seriously, congratulations as well, to the graduates and to the college on completing the chapel. I don't get over there that often and didn't know it was complete. I'll have to swing by and take a look.

Yea, that was quite the chapel. You'll like the new one.

Swung by yesterday. I didn't go inside, but it's nice on the outside. I would have preferred something... King's College, perhaps... and if I win the lottery, I'll swing some money their way. :-)

Rambler -- Dr Patrick designed the building. The subject of architecture and how it fits the times is a good conversation to have with him. It is a good start for a campus.
