The History of St. Thomas Roman Catholic Church in Redmond, Oregon

St. Thomas Parish is a very active Parish. The Altar Society is composed of hard-working and dedicated women of the parish, as are the men involved with the Knights of Columbus. St. Thomas celebrates its Feast Day on July 3rd, the Feast Day for St. Thomas, with a parish dinner/potluck. The Altar Society and Knights of Columbus are co-sponsors of this annual event. Other groups/organizations in the Parish are:

* Daily Mass
* Four weekend masses (one Saturday evening at 5:30p.m. - three on Sunday mornings)
* Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament (Daily 8am to 8pm and 24 hours on Fridays)
* Right To Life Committee
* R.C.I.A.
* Divine Mercy Group (English and Spanish languages)
* Religious Education (Pre-K through 8th grade)
