Poems, Prose and Prayers

One of the highlights of Fr. La Riviere's class was to hear his forceful readings of some of the finest classic poetry, treasures of English literature. This section presents those poems and works of prose - ideal for reading to your own children! Yes, there was lots of great writing before Harry Potter!


We invite any student of Fr. La Riviere who was inspired by him to submit a story about their experiences. This same invite goes out to anyone who knew him at other schools, as a pastor, a mentor or just as a friend. Note: We'd love to hear your Aquinas stories even if they are not directly about Fr. Earl.
