St. Jude is the Patron Saint of Hope and impossible causes and one of Jesus’ original twelve Apostles. He preached the Gospel with great passion, often in the most difficult circumstances. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, he made profound differences in people’s lives as he offered them the Word of God.
Through his intercession to Jesus on our behalf, St. Jude takes us into his continuing care. He welcomes our prayers of gratitude to God, our petitions for strength and help, and offers hope for every intention.
Today, millions of people around the world turn to St. Jude, the Patron of Hope, for his intercession and hope. We invite you to write your petitions and place it them in the basket before 7 pm Mass on Tuesdays at Saint Thomas Church. Please join us in this devotion and turn to St. Jude, a source of strength and inspiration in our faith.
The St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church Youth Ministry is committed to the reality that young people are an important and integral part of our parish community. The youth program seeks to foster the maturing of faith in the youth of our parish and the surrounding community. We affirm the gifts of our youth and we foster opportunities for young people to share their gifts with the larger community. The spiritual and social needs of the youth are to be met with the committed leadership, guidance, and support of our parish adults. The adults and youth of our parish are therefore provided with the opportunity to grow together in Christian faith. Through a variety of programs, events, and outreach, we seek to draw young people into responsible participation in the life, work, and mission of the parish community.
This ministry is truly dedicated to our young people and we believe it is a blessing for the entire community. St.Thomas Youth Ministry is a family of young Catholics (grades 7 - 10), committed to the goal of living out the call of the Gospels through fellowship, prayer, and service in a constant effort to help members become the young men and women God created them to be. Members of the group strive to know Christ intimately, to understand His constant love for them, and to share that love with those around them.
If you would like to become a member of Saint Thomas Youth Ministry and you are in grades 7-10, please contact Fr. Piotr at email@example.com or sign up at the Parish Branch on Sunday, September 25 after each Mass.
