The Pastoral is the set of concrete actions aimed at making an evangelization that brings the Good News to the university community. That is, it allows us to reflect on and carry out the Gospel message taking into account the demands of the current context. The pastoral of Santo Tomás University, aims to reach students, teachers, administrators, researchers, all managers, general services, administrative, graduates and families.
For this reason we seek to be formators in the true life that is Christ, to be LIGHT (to be Neon) and to be SAL (Lifeguard), in our closest contexts as expressed by Pope Francis: "A free heart is a luminous heart that enlighten others ... "
That is why we want our University Pastoral to be open, reflective and participatory but also proactive and committed so that it will lead the entire Tomasina community to a real commitment to the Gospel, Life and Society.
Taking into account the above, the University Pastoral develops activities and projects that allow to demonstrate and promote the participation of the entire Tomasina Community:
