Celebrating more than 50 years of worship and service.

Men of St. Thomas (M.O.S.T.)





 along with our Confirmation candidates and other parish volunteers gathered together recently to prepare Brian Bags for the homeless in our community. 

The Brian O'Connell Homeless project was born in the name of Brian O'Connell who passed away while homeless. The Mission strives to provide basic life necessities to help with the well being of those who may find themselves homeless.

Items in the Bags include first aid supplies, non-perishable food items and other basic life necessities.  

For more information about the Brian O'Connell Homeless project go to: www.brianoc.org



The entire photo album can be found on our photo gallery page.        





Congratulations to the 2018 M.O.S.T. Scholarship recipients!

 The Mission of MOST

The Men of Saint Thomas is an organization (ministry) whose prime mission is to build camaraderie among the membership by focusing on the needs of others. The members are dedicated to assisting other parish groups in a variety of ways, such as, but not limited to, fund raisers and social events. The group will assist in identifying parishioners “in need” and whenever possible, provide a helping hand. The ultimate objective is to enable each member to develop a stronger spirituality, personally, and in relationship within the parish and  Church community.
