Greetings From The Pastor
Warm greetings to you from our entire Saint Thomas the Apostle Parish Community. We would like to get to know you and welcome you to our parish.
This web-site provides an overview of the ministries and activities that “happen” in our Parish. Hopefully, you will review them and determine some specific area(s) of Parish Life that interests you. You will note the emphasis that our Parish Family places on service and spiritual growth. All are encouraged to share their talents with and to develop their interests in our growing community.
As Catholic Christians we take seriously the instructions of Our Lord to be one in Him. We have a strong commitment to develop our relationship with God through prayer, worship and compassionate outreach. We encourage reception of His Sacraments and we try to offer educational programs that enhance our knowledge and understanding of the Gospel message.
All of us at our Parish — Priests, Deacons, Staff and our entire Parish Family — want you to know that regardless of any situation or the past, you are most welcome to join us. Please feel free to visit us anytime. Our ongoing goal is to create an increasingly Christ-centered, Spirit-filled and service-oriented Parish — a welcoming, warm, vibrant beacon of faith, hope and love in our community and society.
