New Parish App
St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church is excited to announce the launch of our new parish app! Available for both Apple and Android devices, the purpose of the app is to stay connected with our parishioners and provide Catholic resources for them, all with a tap of a button.
Features of the app include:
- Messages/Push Notifications: Members can receive announcements and information from the parish. Simply turn on “General” notifications under setting to have information from the church appear on the home screen of your device. (Do the same for any parish groups who are set-up in the app and in which you are involved.)
- Mass Times Want to attend a different mass than usual? Push the button and view our Mass Schedule.
- Bulletin View the most recent bulletin, as well as older editions, directly from the app.
- Calendar Can’t remember when an event is scheduled? Access a daily list of events and activities which pulls directly from the full church calendar.
- Sacraments Easily retrieve information about preparing for and receiving sacraments (including Confession schedules).
- Fr. Andy’s Blog Yes, that’s right! Fr. Andy has a blog and the easiest way to read his posts are to access them from the new app.
- Daily Readings Jumpstart your day, prepare for mass, or look back at readings with this button.
- Prayers Have a hard time remembering the Act of Contrition for confession? No problem, just use the app to look it up, as well as 36 other Catholic prayers.
- Catholic News Behind this button are news feeds, which will give parishioners instant access to what is going on in the Catholic world.
- Ministry Schedules Can’t remember when you’re scheduled to serve? No worries, just click this app button to retrieve the schedules for various Liturgical Roles/Apostolate groups.
- Staff Put staff faces with their names, and easily contact any of them by tapping the Staff button.
- Contact Us Tap on the Contact Us button to call or email us right from the app or access our website.
The app is completely customizable to our needs, which is quite unusual for church apps and great for us! As we add additional features, we will inform our parishioners. As well, we expect the developer of our app to make regular updates and we will pass along that information, too.
