Rev. Brendan Murphy, O.P.
Chaplain and Director of Aquinas House
It is a wonderful blessing to be the chaplain of Aquinas House and have the opportunity to serve the pastoral needs of the students, faculty, and staff of Dartmouth College. Aquinas House has such wonderful history and it has provided so many young people with the opportunity to grow in their faith, make lifelong friends, and bring Christ to others. May God continue to bless you and our ministry at AQ!
