Saint Thomas the Apostle – Feast Day July 3

FEAST DAY JULY 3rd

St. Thomas, our parish patron Saint, was one of the Twelve Apostles. He was a Jew from Galilee called by Jesus to accompany him on his mission to proclaim the Kingdom of God. When Jesus’ life was threatened as he went to raise Lazarus from the dead, Thomas said to the others, “Let us also go, that we may die with Jesus’.
Thomas doubted that Jesus had truly been raised from the dead. The Resurrection was proven to Thomas when Jesus appeared to him. Thomas said, “My Lord and My God”.


St. Gregory the Great once said, “The unbelief of Thomas has done more for our faith than the faith of the other disciples. Our doubts are answered by the demand of St. Thomas to know that Jesus’ resurrection was real.

In John 14: 1-7 we hear St. Thomas again.  This Gospel is part of  Jesus’ Farewell Discourse given at the Last Supper.  It is often heard at  funeral Masses, as it is a source of comfort and hope. Thomas could not comprehend what Jesus meant when he said, “I will come back again and take you to Myself, that where I am you may also be.  Where I am going you know the way.”  Thomas’ question is, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we now the way?”  Jesus replies, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  No one can come to the Father except through me.”

According to tradition, St. Thomas preached the gospel in India and was martyred there.

Air Conditioner Repair Fund

Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Thomas the Apostle Church, 

For those whom attended Mass this past weekend I am sure you could tell that the air conditioning was not working properly. There are two 40 ton units that cool the Church. The unit that does the north side is no longer functioning. The units were installed in 1972. The south side unit was replaced approximately nine years ago. The north side unit was repaired in early spring and was running well. Unfortunately there is now another repair needed that is not worth making on such an older and inefficient unit. The cost of the replacement will be around $45,000.  It will take several weeks for a new unit to be delivered and installed. In the meantime, the south side unit will try and keep the church as cool as possible. In the coming weeks we will also have a special collection to help offset this large emergency repair.  The money collected previously on this page will be put towards the repair.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and support. 

In Christ, 

Fr. Larry
