College's New Name Honors Saintly Duo

As if one great saint wasn’t enough, the College of St. Thomas More in Fort Worth, Texas has added another saint to its name: it will now be known as the College of Saints John Fisher and Thomas More. Former Episcopal clergyman, Dr. Taylor Marshall, now a Catholic layman and newly installed dean at Fisher More College (as the college is called colloquially), noted the change on his blog Canterbury Tales:
Beginning on May 5th, the College began a new chapter by expanding the name of the College and creating a new website. The Board of Visitors of the College has approved the elevation of Saint John Fisher—the great contemporary, co-martyr, friend, and confidant of Saint Thomas More—to the official name. The name recognizes the thirty-year legacy under the patronage of Saint Thomas More, but also brings distinction and clarity with the priestly and academic patronage of Saint John Fisher.
Fisher More College was recommended in The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College.
