Number of years of thought-leaders speaking to the St. Thomas community
For more than 30 years, St. Thomas alumni and friends have been drawn to the First Friday Speaker Series luncheons to network and hear first-hand from the community’s most interesting “thought leaders.” Their often candid and always relevant messages offer a unique perspective on the common good, and divulge what’s next for Minnesota and beyond.
Fall 2021 Update
In light of changing conditions around COVID 19 and variants, final decisions about the 2021-22 First Friday season are pending. Please check back for more information in the future.
