We, as St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Parish, recognize that we are the Body of Christ. Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we strive to serve others through Christian Service, Prayer and Worship, Education and Evangelization. We keep within our hearts and minds the statement of faith and conviction of our patron St. Thomas the Apostle, "My Lord and my God".
Mercy in Action
On October 14 in the Ministry Building
About 50+ people from our parish, from Wayne State Dental School, and from other local churches joined together for the common cause of helping others.
Among those served were homeless
and/or hungry in our area and hurricane victims.
A big Thank You! to Cindy Portis for putting this opportunity together and
for all those who volunteered!
Our parish Food pantry is available to help those in need make ends meet or those who need food due to a family emergency or unexpected job loss. We also try to have personal hygiene products available. Imagine your life if you did not have toilet tissue, laundry soap, or shampoo to wash your hair! Our pantry has been helping people that come in to our parish office seeking help. If you would like to be at the pantry during the day so people can come in on a monthly basis, please contact me.
at the above email address or by calling the office.
