Former Aquinas Institute faculty member, Fr. Kevin Stephens, OP, has returned to Jerusalem to serve as administrator of the École Biblique, the oldest biblical and archaeological research center in the Holy Land.
Upon this announcement, Prior Provincial Fr. Louis Morrone, OP, remarked, “All of us in the Province of St. Albert the Great are pleased to hear of the recent appointment of Fr. Kevin to this distinguished position. While we shall miss his immediate presence at the Dominican Community in St. Louis and his incredible teaching at Aquinas Institute of Theology, we are honored to commit one of our brothers to the remarkable contributions and the advancement of scripture scholarship for which the École Biblique is known worldwide. Fr. Kevin knows the community and school very well having received his degree from the École. We wish him God speed and add our prayers for all during these difficult times in Israel.”
