A Community of Faith
Wherever you are on your faith journey, we welcome you to join us!
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.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) issued a statement on the moral concerns about the creation of a vaccine for COVID-19.
In collaboration with other organizations working to protect human life, the USCCB has been engaged in a campaign advocating for the development of a vaccine for COVID-19 that has no link to abortion that includes a request to the FDA to ensure “that Americans will have access to vaccines that are free from any connection to abortion.”
In view of the gravity of the current pandemic and the lack of availability of alternative vaccines, the reasons to accept the new COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are sufficiently serious to justify their use, despite their remote connection to morally compromised cell lines.
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,
that we may be made worthy
of the promises of Christ.
While we are separated by quarantines, self-isolation and social distancing, Pope Francis reminds us that, united in Christ, we are never alone.
