Saint Thomas the Apostle

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.
According to tradition, St. Thomas preached the gospel in India.

Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experience

After leaving Lourdes forever for religious life in Nevers, when Bernadette was asked if she missed the Grotto, she said: “I go to my beloved Grotto in my heart every day and make my pilgrimage there.”
Join us to the Grotto of Our Hearts

July 18th experience Lourdes  virtually  with an exceptional blessing from the Holy Father! 
Pope Francis has proclaimed a Plenary Indulgence for Lourdes Virtual Pilgrimage Experience TM to be broadcast or live-streamed directly to you with the same grace as if we were in your local parish or the Sanctuary in France! 
Although we cannot go to France or visit your parish community during this extraordinary time, we can accompany you to the Grotto of your heart and unite together under the mantle of Our Lady of Lourdes.

You will need to prepare your heart instead of your suitcase for this spiritual online journey. There will be no turbulence or frequent flyer miles—but you will receive all of the same graces!

A pilgrimage kit including Lourdes Water, a third class relic image of the Grotto at Lourdes and a blessed candle will be mailed to all that RSVP by July 9th to ensure that you have all you need for this special travel. 

On Saturday, July 18th, there will be no waiting or airport delays… simply gather your pilgrimage kit contents and join us at this link.

We hope that this experience will bring you the peace and healing of every Lourdes Pilgrimage. Until we are able to resume travel again, we will stay prayerfully connected praying altogether “in the Grotto of our Hearts”.  
RSVP and Request Your Kit Today!

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
