St. Thomas the Apostle has a license with One License -- #730388-A. This license allows us to reprint or project music for the congregation, to podcast or stream services containing this music, or to copy practice-tracks for rehearsal purposes.
We installed a Hearing Loop to assist those with hearing loss hear more clearly during our church services. To receive the Hearing Loop signal, activate the T-coil setting on your hearing aid or see your audiologist for assistance.
The theme of the 2020 Annual Pastoral Appeal is WE ARE SALT & LIGHT, Living the Gospel through the Annual Pastoral Appeal. Everyone is asked to join Bishop Parkes and all parishes and missions throughout our diocese in making a pledge or gift for the benefit of each parish, and more importantly, for the many in need throughout the five counties of our diocese. Every gift is valuable.
Being His Salt and Light calls us to transform the lives of others for the good. Thank you in advance for continuing to support our parish and our diocesan faith family in so many ways.
We are a Roman Catholic community proclaiming the Good News of Salvation through Jesus Christ and invite everyone to join our family community in a loving and spiritual environment in which we may grow in service and knowledge of God.
Professing one Faith, one Lord, and one Baptism, we the people of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish seek to know Jesus Christ fully, to serve Him faithfully, and to experience the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.
Through the Stewardship of our Time, Talent, and Treasure, we strive to minister to the spiritual and material needs of all God's Children.
Our Core Values
Our mission is to be a community that follows and shares Jesus Christ through the sacraments, prayer, catechesis, evangelization, and works of charity.
