It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Parish! At S.T.A. we believe that all human beings have worth and dignity, regardless of age, status, state of life, or cultural background. We want our Church to be a place of God’s mercy and hope, where all feel welcomed, loved, forgiven, and encouraged to live according to the good life of the Gospel. Our doors here at STA are wide open so that all may enter.
These same doors are also wide open so we can go out to proclaim the Gospel to our world. From our uplifting Masses and Liturgies that echo all the beauty and richness of our Catholic faith to our outreach and pastoral care ministries, everything we do at St. Thomas Aquinas leads us out into the world to build up the Kingdom of God.
With your participation in our parish family, we can live out the joy of the Gospel in our own lives and find even more ways of spreading the Good News to the world. Together may we grow to love God, love others, and make disciples!
Fr. Bart D. Timmerman, Pastor

School Supply Drive in July
For over a decade, neighbors of the Lussier Community Education Center, like St. Thomas Aquinas parish, have provided school supplies for children who might not otherwise have them. In order to help ensure that students are ready for school, we are accepting new school supplies here at the parish anytime during July. In particular, there is a big push for new backpacks this year…it makes such a difference for kids when they can show up to school with a real bag and not a plastic or paper sack.
Here is a list of useful supplies for children in our neighborhood.
