We are committed to deepening our love for and understanding of the truths taught by our Holy Church and the revelation passed on to us through Sacred Scripture. We will express our faith by active and lively participation in liturgical and private prayer. We will receive the sacraments with reverence recognizing them as seven unique channels by which the Spirit breathes life into His people.
We shall become a living sign in the midst of a sinful world that God is with us. We will proclaim by example that the suffering and injustice of our age will soon give way to the Kingdom of God.
We will come to know that we are intimately loved by our God who formed each of us in the palm of His hand. We will love and adore Him to the best of our ability. We shall love all human beings, recognizing that life is sacred from conception to natural death. We strive to show forth our love for one another through the virtues of hospitality, forgiveness, generosity, justice, compassion and tolerance. In so doing, we will form a community or believers, mutually supportive, who proclaim the good news of Jesus by our love for one another.
Our parish is truly blessed by those who serve us locally.

St. Thomas Academy -
Our parish sells scrip (gift cards to local businesses that you purchase at face value but which allows a small portion of the amount to be donated to our school upkeep). For example, if you pay $25 for a gift card, it is worth $25 at the business of your choice. It's an easy way to help support our youth while just going about your daily life. Large orders are available through the school office.
You may purchase scrip after weekend Masses or at the school office during the week.
