Feed the Hungry

St. Thomas’ parishioners participate in and provide links for us to the many community outreach opportunities listed here. Several even serve in leadership roles in these various organizations!

If you see something that piques your interest, please contact the individuals listed. They would love to share their passions with you, and hopefully help you find a meaningful way to engage as well. And if you have an opportunity you would like to bring to the attention of the parish, let us know that as well!
