Warm greetings to you from our entire Saint Thomas the Apostle Parish Community. We would like to get to know you and welcome you to our parish.
As Catholic Christians we take seriously the instructions of Our Lord to be one in Him. We have a strong commitment to develop our relationship with God through prayer, worship and compassionate outreach. We encourage reception of His Sacraments and we try to offer educational programs that enhance our knowledge and understanding of the Gospel message.
Msgr. Richard A. Behl, Pastor
is the 266th and current Pope of the Roman Catholic Church who chose Francis as his papal name in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi.Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he was ordained a Catholic priest in 1969, and from 1973 to 1979 was Argentina's provincial superior of the Society of Jesus. He became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998, and was created a cardinal in 2001 by Pope John Paul II. He led the Argentine Church during the December 2001 riots in Argentina, and the administrations of Néstor Kirchner and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner considered him a political rival. Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI on 28 February 2013, a papal conclave elected Bergoglio as his successor on 13 March.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
