Celebrating God’s People in Extraordinary Variety

Dear Friends, on September 9, 2018, St. Thomas the Apostle Church started celebrating our 150th anniversary as a parish church in Chicago and we would like you to be involved. Choose from a variety of ways you can join in the planning and festivities. Everyone can play a part. Let’s get to know one another better as we play and pray as a community. Let’s celebrate!

Steering Committee: Candace Scheidt, Paula Jones, and Gwen Anderson.
