We welcome you to St. Thomas and hope that you will soon feel like a part of our community of faith.

If you are visiting with us or have not registered at the parish, we would love to get to know you better! You may stop in the office to register or pick-up a registration form in church or even register online. The Welcome Committee's mission is not only to help you to know about St. Thomas but to also help you feel like St. Thomas is your home and an extension of your family.
