The Catholic Ministries Appeal for 2019 has begun...
If you have given in the past, we thank you for your generosity and hope that you will donate again. If you have not given in recent years, please consider making a gift this year as so many of our neighbors are in need.
St. Thomas' goal for 2019 has been set by the Diocese of Rockville Centre at $111,000. Once we reach our targeted amount our parish will receive back a percentage of the total donated. Last year our parish exceeded our goal and received a meaningful rebate to help fund programs right here in our parish.
