The genesis for Justice Month came about when the Office of Peace and Justice’s (OPJ) stepped up to the challenges of the Archdiocesan Strategic Pastoral Plan, seriously engaging the Year of Teen and Young Adult. With this impetus, OPJ began asking peace and justice leaders in each vicariate this fundamental question: How can justice education spark the imaginations of Archdiocesan teens and young adults? The mission of Justice Month is, therefore, to empower local parish leaders to develop peace and justice strategies which include youth and young adults.

Parish Mission

St. Thomas the Apostle Parish, “God’s People in Extraordinary Variety,” is a welcoming community of Roman Catholics from diverse social, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. We rise to the challenge of creating community in diversity through our shared commitment to Christ’s redeeming love.

Our mission is twofold: To promote unity among our members through prayer, participation in the sacraments, Catholic education (in its various forms), and social interactions; and to express the gospel values that unite us in our community and the community around us, especially by sharing our gifts of time, treasure, and talent.
