“She (The church) exists in order to evangelize, that is to say, in order to preach and teach, to be the channel of the gift of grace, to reconcile sinners with God, and to perpetuate Christ's sacrifice in the Mass, which is the memorial of His death and glorious resurrection.”
-Evangelii Nuntiandi #14
Our parish is alive with a variety of groups and their activities. We invite you to get involved. People who met here find their common interests and either join existing ministries or form their own that will perform the corporal and spiritual works of mercy in the community of which we are a part. We are the first parish in this Archdiocese to have a Seniors minister who dedicates himself to discovering and taking advantage of the wealth of wisdom, expertise, and passion in those who no longer have to work typical jobs. We have an active program for children of all ages and for young adults as well. There are Christ-centered programs for all ages and all interests. We, though many, are one body in Christ. Come and see! We really are many! We have Americans, Czechs, Scots, Nigerians, Poles, Mexicans, Cameroonians, Guatemalans, Togolese, French, Liberians, Spaniards, Indians, South Africans, Italians, Brazilians, Ivoirians, Salvadorans, Malaysians, Ghanaians, Vietnamese, Congolese, Chinese, Hondurans, Nicaraguans even Uruguayans, Argentinians and Chileans! We even have people from Canada and Minnesota, don’t you know?
Entering the holiday season can be stressful and difficult especially after the loss of a loved one. Approaching the holidays with a plan can be a very helpful way to navigate the triggers and occasions of grief that you will encounter.
Watch the video below for a number of helpful tips and tools to help you move through the holidays with joy and hope. Thank you to our very own parishioner, Suzanne Feeney, Bereavement Ministery here at STA!
At St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, we open doors for the faithful to take action in our call to evangelize through participation in the parish-based Ministries and services or the different international and archdiocesan approved lay Organizations listed in this page.
