Faith & Community at St. Thomas the Apostle
What makes St. Thomas the Apostle School stand apart is not something tangible – it is the feeling that you get when you walk through the doors of the building. St. Thomas the Apostle School is a Christ-centered environment with a warm, welcoming atmosphere. This feeling comes from our students, parents, faculty, staff, and volunteers who share their faith, compassion, knowledge, and dedication with each other and with the community.
The culture of St. Thomas the Apostle School is a “way of life” rooted in Christ, a Gospel-based creed and code, and a Catholic vision that provides inspiration and identity. We receive and experience this culture through our liturgies, prayers, celebrations, symbols, and beliefs. We are a people of hope, faith, service, courage, and justice. We hope, love, reconcile, and build community with one another.
Each day we strive to be an authentic Catholic school by connecting what we do with the Gospel message through the formation of faith via classroom instruction, projects and service to God and the community. The ways in which we donate our time and talents are varied. Some examples of our students’ service and community-building activities include visiting the elderly and sick, hosting fundraisers for those in need and donating to local food pantries. Students in second grade receive sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.
