St. Thomas the Apostle Parish, “God’s People in Extraordinary Variety,” is a welcoming community of Roman Catholics 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 twofold: To promote unity among our members through prayer, participation in the sacraments, Catholic education (in its various forms), and social interactions; and to express the gospel values that unite us in our community and the community around us, especially by sharing our gifts of time, treasure, and talent.
