St. Thomas Aquinas Church

For Your Safety

A Reminder of STA Safety Regulations and Requirements
We are proud to offer the parishioners of St. Thomas Aquinas many options to attend Mass, safely and comfortably. As a reminder, the Archbishop of Atlanta has extended the dispensation of the Eucharist for the foreseeable future. However, STA understands the importance of community. With the rise of COVID-19 cases in the last few weeks, we would like to remind you of the regulations and requirements STA has in place for everyone’s safety. Click here to view all safety requirements and recommendations.

We have seen other local parishes in North Fulton and South Forsyth shut down in the last few weeks due to COVID concerns, so we ask that you be mindful of the impact to the Parish and the community in the next few months, as we navigate the virus surge in our neighborhoods, schools and businesses. If you feel sick or have experienced any symptoms of COVID-19, please do NOT come to Mass. Protecting the Parish from the virus impact is an act of stewardship to our community, clergy, volunteers and staff.

Por tu seguridad

Todas las misas que se celebran en el interior del templo, son con asientos limitados asignados en base al orden de llegada; contamos con 140 lugares. Aquellas personas que prefieran oír misa en el exterior del templo, podrán acomodarse en el Jardín de Oración o en la carpa ubicada en el Circulo Social.  Por su seguridad, para ingresar al templo debe traer cubrebocas (sin excepciones), así como seguir las instrucciones de los Ministros de Hospitalidad para donde pueden sentarse, el orden para recibir la Sagrada Comunión y para salir del edificio.  Le recomendamos que llegue temprano y que estén todos los que quieren sentarse juntos para que se le asigne asiento en el templo. Haga clic aquí para ver todos los requisitos de seguridad.

Hemos visto otras parroquias locales en North Fulton y South Forsyth cerradas en las últimas semanas debido a casos de COVID, por lo que le pedimos que tenga en cuenta el impacto que esto puede tener en nuestra parroquia y nuestra comunidad en los próximos meses, mientras nos enfrentamos al aumento de casos de COVID en nuestros vecindarios, escuelas y negocios. Si se siente enfermo, si ha experimentado algún síntoma de COVID-19 o ha estado en contacto en las últimas dos semanas con alguien contagiado de COVID, POR FAVOR NO asista a misa, no entre al edificio. Cada uno de nosotros somos responsables de proteger a nuestra comunidad, el clero, los voluntarios y el personal parroquial contra el impacto del virus.

Thank you to all those that made our Easter services come together last week. From decorating, to ushering, to live-streaming, we could not have done it without our volunteers! If you have pictures from last week, please e-mail to [email protected].

Our Sister Parish in Haiti

As most of you know, twinning with our sister parish, St. Martin-de-Tours in Delatte, Haiti, goes back to 1998.   After helping rebuild their church, The Haiti ministry was formed at St. Thomas Aquinas. St. Thomas Aquinas then pledged to assist St. Martin's school system, comprised of a main and satellite locations, by providing funds to cover teacher salaries, school supplies and a daily meal for the school children.  Soon after, a team was formed to go provide much needed dental care once a year.

 Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has severely impacted St. Thomas' collections for the Haiti ministry. The drastic reduction in donations has forced some of St. Martin' schools to close due to the inability to pay the teachers and provide for student needs.

Many volunteers joined forces to produce the attached video from pictures taken during dental care missions to Haiti. 

At the end of this video, there is a QR code that, when scanned with your phone's camera, will take you to the St. Thomas Aquinas web site donation page under the heading: Haiti/Sister Parish.  There, you can make a single or recurring donation to this mission.  If preferred, please mail your donation with the mention "HAITI" directly to St. Thomas Aquinas at 535 Rucker Rd, Alpharetta, GA 30004.  Receipts will be issued for tax purposes.

100% of donations go to support the schools and the children of St. Martin in Delatte, Haiti. Nothing is used for administrative expenses. Click here to learn more.
