Discover Your Gifts! PDF Print E-mail

Each fall, parishioners are asked to participate recommit to living stewardship as a way of life.  All are asked to re-evaluate and accept their God-given gifts, revisit the true meaning of stewardship, pray about how they should give back to Him through working in the Parish and make commitments to do just that.

As easy as that may seem, the first step of the process - realizing and understanding one's God-given gifts - can be a stumbling block that prevents true personal commitment or even participating in the renewal process.   Frequently, yet for reasons unknown, good Catholics grateful to God for all they have, feel their qualifications  couldn't possibly meet the requirements of the Parish or honestly think they have nothing to offer for the benefit of the Church.  The fact of the matter; however; is that each of our parishioners has been given useful and unique gifts,  all gifts from God are precious with one being no better than another and our Parish success is witness of parishioners gifts being needed in the life of the Church.

Truly believing in this all, and in an effort to assist parishioners in discovering their own personal God-given talents,  St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church would like to remind parishioners about our Spiritual Gifts Inventory tool.  The online tool, which  generates a list of personal talents, correlating scripture readings and recommendations of Parish Apostolate Groups, consists of a total of 115 questions and takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.  (For the personal gifts inventories to be generated with accuracy, each question must be answered, preferably spontaneously but with humility and honesty.)   Inventories can be printed directly from internet browsers and detailed results can be emailed, if so requested.

Confirmation 2014 PDF Print E-mail

Parishioners who are high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors, and who are not yet confirmed, are invited to prepare for and receive the Sacrament of Confirmation at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church this fall.

The Sacrament of Confirmation is the completion of the Sacrament of Baptism.  Through Confirmation, a person makes the decision to own his or her faith, whereas parents and godparents made the vows on behalf of that person at Baptism. Confirmation brings an increase and deepening of baptismal grace, roots one more deeply as children of the Father, unites one more firmly to Christ, increases the gifts of the Holy Spirit within one, and renders the bond with the Church more perfect.

Preparation for Confirmation includes classes, group discussions, retreats, and service events.  Confirmation teams will meet on Sunday evenings. The Sacrament of Confirmation will be celebrated at our parish on Wednesday, December 3rd at 7:00 p.m.

All eligible students who wish to join the Confirmation Preparation Program are required to attend a Confirmation Orientation on Sunday, August 24th, at 7:00 p.m. in Allen Hall.

Please click here to register for Confirmation Preparation Program*.

*Registering for Confirmation Preparation will serve as RSVP for the Orientation.

 
Business Listings for 2015 Stewardship Directory PDF Print E-mail

In an effort to once again promote mutual support of parishioner businesses, STA Catholic Church is pleased to announce that a parishioner business directory will once again be published in our Parish Stewardship Directory.

Similar to the "yellow pages" found in the back of phone books, the listings within the business directory will be categorized by industry.  Business listings will include the name of the business, the name of the parishioner associated with the company and contact information.  Other important information, such as website addresses and business hours, may be included with each listing, if space allows.

Parishioners who listed their businesses in last year's directory are asked to please submit listings for the new directory, in order to ensure accuracy of the information.

Please click here to access an online Business Listing Registration Form. All registrations must be received by September 1.

Since inception, the Good Samaritans Apostolate has provided a helping hand to parishioners who have found themselves in temporary precarious life situations and volunteers of the parish group have sent letters of support to parishioners who are ill or grieving.  Realizing, though, that there several Apostolate groups which overlapped in services and a great need to expand the Good Samaritans scope, Rides to Mass has been moved under the Apostolate umbrella and the group now provides light-labor services and meals for fellow parishioners in-need.  In addition, in an effort to fulfill our obligation to serve the greater community as well as our own, parishioners can refer non-parishioners to receive a meal in a time of need through the Good Samaritans Apostolate.   The mission of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church Good Samaritans Apostolate is a to serve those in-need, on a short-term basis, through the example presented in the Parable of the Good Samaritan and in the likeness and image of Jesus Christ.
