Thoughts from Fr. Dan Costello, Parish Administrator

Dear Parishioners & Friends of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish,

We are pleased that Bishop Perry, our regional bishop and Cardinal Cupich’s representative to our region of the archdiocese, will be with us on Thursday evening, January 21, at 6:00pm, to join us in prayer and share an important update on the future of our parishes.
