Daily Mass Schedule Change

July 9, 2024

Blessings and God’s Peace be with you!

Brothers and sisters, the time has finally arrived for us to move forward on the next phase of this growth and redevelopment. This July, our Parish Hall and the northernmost classroom wing will come down in order to create the footprint for our new school building. This will be a major project that will bring with it some changes over the next year, including parking and daily Mass time

Sunday Parking.

Parking will look a little different beginning this weekend. Our contractor, Wespac, is in control of the north parking lot and northeast portion of our campus for this build. Fencing and signage are in place to help everyone know what parts of our campus will be off-limits and to help direct traffic in and out of parking lots. Beginning the  weekend of July 13/14, we are opening up the back courts (off the Campbell Street lot) to alleviate parking constraints and will have parking guides to help us navigate getting to and from Sunday Mass . Please continue to be good neighbors to the residents nearby and only park in designated areas, keeping driveways clear and avoiding parking too close to corners and pedestrian access to sidewalks.

New daily Mass time

Beginning Monday, July 29 and until further notice, the new daily Mass time Monday-Saturday will be 6:30am.

Mon-Fri Parking Lot closures during school days:

During the school year, both the 24th Street and Campbell lots will need to be clear of non-staff cars after daily morning Mass from 7:20am-8:30am for school kiss-and-go drop-off. Additionally, the lots will be unavailable in the afternoons each day Monday-Friday from 2:30-3:30pm for school kiss-and-go pick-up.

More than ever, we need to be patient with one another during construction for the inconveniences it will cause. 

Saint Thomas is our home and I couldn’t be more excited to invest in the growth and renewal of this incredible place! Thank you for you patience, prayers, and continued financial support of our parish and school. May God richly bless you all. Saint Thomas the Apostle, pray for us! 

In all things may Christ be glorified!
