Mission Statement


St. Thomas the Apostle Parish is a Christian Community of the Roman Catholic tradition in the Diocese of Metuchen. As a people, we are called Christ to become a caring and compassionate family. This family is challenged to extend Christ’s love and embrace to all who come to Him in Faith, Hope and Love. As a family, we freely and joyfully gather for prayer and worship. We journey together on the spiritual journey of growing in knowledge and love of Christ Jesus and of what it means to be His disciples.
