Prayers & Devotions

Below are many prayers and devotions that you can do in your home with your family.

The Year of St. Joseph

Examination of Conscience

This examination is adapted from the official questionnaire that is used when the Church is investigating the worthiness for beatification and canonization of Catholics. They are the questions that are asked of the witnesses who knew the person in question when they were alive. It is a truly great examination of how we are doing, and what type of goals we can set in order to truly live our Catholic faith. 

Volunteer at St. Thomas!

If you have been attending Mass, we hope you can assist us with basic needs during the Liturgy! E-mail Deacon Joe Diaz and Thanks for your help!
