Let there be light:Genesis 1:3
The Motto of St. Thomas College is 'let there be light' (Genesis 1:3). We believe that enlightenment through learning and the growth of knowledge leads us to an awareness of a creative spirit. This in turn breaks through the darkness of ignorance, fear and despair to bring the light of truth, love and hope. It turns us away from self-interest to an awareness of the ‘other’, to further dimensions of life, to our responsibility to share the light with others.
