“The Eucharist is the ‘source and summit of the Christian life.’
‘The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries
and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist
and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is
contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely
Christ himself, our Pasch’.”
The Catechism of the Catholic Church 1324
Sunday Eucharist is the center and summit of Catholic life at St. Thomas Aquinas. Despite the suspension of public masses during the pandemic, STA continues to offer virtual mass to its parishioners. As we enter a new phase of reopening, STA will offer the Holy Eucharist through a Drive-Thru experience with Holy Communion.
Stay tuned for more information regarding the reopening of the church and Mass.
Visit Keeping the Lord Jesus at the Center to find spiritual resources to assist families and individuals who are unable to participate in Mass on Sunday or other days. The Lord Jesus and His gift of self in the Eucharist remain at the center of our lives.
Spiritual Communion Prayer
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 in 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.
