St. Thomas Clergy and Staff

Parish Retreat on Sept. 11

On Sunday afternoon, Sept. 11, from 2:30-8:30 p.m. (dinner included!), plan to join fellow parishioners for this dynamic presentation by author, talk show host, and motivational speaker, Teresa Tomeo, featured on EWTN, Ave Maria Radio, and over 500 Catholic radio stations worldwide. Teresa will give 3 talks during the afternoon and speak to us about her own faith journey of falling away from the Church, returning, and the challenges that we all face in living our faith. How do we encounter Christ? And how do we fulfill God’s will for our lives?  Don’t miss this opportunity to jump-start your faith! 

To register, go to https://sthomaslc.flocknote.com/signup/94345. Or for more information, contact Tom Bradley at [email protected].

Global Synod

Thank you for participating in the Synod Survey, an anonymous diocesan online survey that addressed questions about our Catholic faith and the universal Catholic Church. St. Thomas the Apostle placed 6th of the 51 parishes in the diocese for participation-- with more than 220 respondents. In October, Pope Francis began a three-year synodal journey of consultations and discernment, which will culminate with an assembly of world bishops in 2023. Read more and find a link to the final diocesan synod report to the USCCB here.
