Parish Mission

St. Thomas the Apostle Parish (God’s People in Extraordinary Variety) is a welcoming community of Christians from diverse social, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. We rise to the challenge of creating community in diversity through our shared commitment to Christ’s redeeming love.

Our mission is to worship God and serve him as he commands us.   We do this primarily by promoting unity among our members through prayer, worship, the sacraments, Catholic education (in its various forms), and social service.  We seek to express the gospel values not only within the parish, but also with the community around us, by sharing our gifts of time, treasure, and talent.
