Public Square Rosary Crusade

A public recitation of the rosary will take place noon Saturday, Oct. 10, on the West Brigantine Avenue side of St. Thomas’ parking lot. This event constitutes a part of rallies taking place across all the United States on this date, sponsored by America Needs Fatima. The intention of the crusade is to beg God and Our Lady to save America from today's immorality and secularism; participation is strongly encouraged and appreciated. Please wear your mask and bring your own chair.

Eucharistic Procession to the Homebound

St. Thomas plans to conduct Eucharistic Processions to the homebound, similar to one held in June, on Sundays, Oct. 11 and 18, following the 11 a.m. Mass. Participants include our Deacon Len Long who will carry the Holy Eucharist and Fathers Ed Maher and Krzysztof Wtorek who will distribute communion to the faithful. If you or a loved one is 65 or older, homebound or hesitant to return to Mass, please call the rectory to advise that you would like to be visited. As plans become clearer, we will call you to advise what time to expect the procession to visit your residence.
