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.

A video message from Bishop Gregory Parkes:

For the latest information from Bishop Parkes and the diocese on the coronavirus, click here to visit the diocesan website.

On May 20, 2020, Bishop Gregory Parkes announced the joyful return to the public celebration of Sunday Mass.

Here at St. Thomas we returned to our normal schedule to publicly celebrate our Sunday masses beginning with the Vigil Mass for Pentecost.

 

Please review our guidelines for safely returning to public celebration of Sunday mass located here.

 

We will continue to live-stream our Masses and services on Facebook @MyStThomas.org.

 

For those without access to Facebook, we will post a link to the services at the top of our homepage as soon as possible after the live-stream, so you can view the Mass or service after it has aired.

​You are all in my daily prayers, and along with you, the pastoral staff and I pray for an end to this pandemic and for the safety and well-being of everyone. 

Stay blessed,

Fr. Glenn

Pastor's Announcements

There are many ways to keep the faith during this challenging time.  It provides us with many opportunities to:

Reconnect with our families 

Call our friends and neighbors to see how they are

Be kind and compassionate

Read the bible

Say the rosary, the Stations of the Cross, or the Divine Mercy Chaplet

Learn a new prayer or devotion

Offer spiritual communion

My Jesus, 
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, 
and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally, 
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.

Amen.

 

Keeping the Faith

While we are separated by quarantines, self-isolation and social distancing, Pope Francis reminds us that, united in Christ, we are never alone.

There are many resources available online - here are just a few:

Latest Health Updates

Stay up-to-date on the latest health advisories by visiting only trusted sites:

Florida Department of Health

Center for Disease Control and Prevention

Keep you and your loved ones safe!

Clean your hands often

Avoid close contact

Stay home if you're sick

Cover coughs and sneezes

Clean and disinfect

Only go out for essential needs.  When you do go out, wear a mask.

If you think you're sick:

Don't leave home except for medical care

Stay in touch with your doctor - call ahead to make an appointment

Stay away from others including family members

In addition to observing social distancing, we strongly encourage the wearing of masks anytime you go out in public. "Masks don’t have to be complex to be effective.  Anyone can make a mask at home by cutting up a cotton T-shirt, tying it together, and then washing it at the end of the day.  Another approach is a paper towel and rubber bands that can be thrown in the trash at the end of each day."  Click here to read the full Washington Post article.

You can also support our local healthcare workers by making disposable masks.  Please click here for information from the diocese about participating in this much needed effort.

Let us work together to flatten the curve -- wear masks, save lives!

Wear Masks, Save Lives

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
That we may be made worthy

of the promises of Christ.
