Bring Holy Communion to the Homebound

Did you know that there are two retirement communities near Saint Thomas the Apostle? Every week parishioners volunteer as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion to the Homebound and take the Eucharist to those living in homes who are unable to make it to Mass. We are looking for a very special and dedicated volunteer to discern this very important apostolate to the homebound. Right now, there is a need for at least one volunteer to take Holy Communion to the residents of one of those communities, Olive Grove Retirement Community, located off of 30th Street and Indian School Road, once a week. For more information about this beautiful ministry or to signup to volunteer, please contact Brittany Allen at the parish office, (602) 9549089 x5210 or

We are looking for a few good offertory counters to help one Monday morning a month from 9:00-11:00.



Did you know? That our pan-try is located right here on the church property? While some know this...other people are surprised to hear this. The pantry is just west of the parish gift store and housed in the parish office area. We are so happy that we have space right here on some other St. Vincent conferences operate out of trailers or are off property. What a blessing that we are allocated square footage right here at our St. Thomas the Apostle home!

Another interesting fact: each quarter we have a “surprise” visit from a health inspector from Maricopa County. We are happy to report that we have passed all these inspections and care so much about keeping a clean, orderly and safe operation! Much credit for this clean ship is our talented and dedicated pantry manager, Michele Baldasano. We smile to see all of Michele’s notes each week. Signs like “Use this first”, “Eggs stored on bottom frig shelf!” and “Get these snack items moving!”. Michele makes sure that stock is rotated and shelves are neat and tidy. She is one in a million and keeps us running smoothly.

In addition, Dianne saves the day by her work each week to mop, clean and scour the pantry til it sparkles! We are so grateful for her smile, and good eye for detail! Pat and Patricia also come in each week to help stock the shelves and make sure that every-thing is ready to roll for the daily home visit teams. What would we do without their help to fill the shelves and make sure that we have good variety? We are truly blessed to have such a superstar team assembled to make our pantry shine.

Thank you Michele, Dianne , Pat and Patricia for your dedication and hard work to keep our pantry ship shape! Many blessings to all in our parish and to Father Steve for all your support, kindness and prayers. You inspire us in our mission to love and serve those who are struggling!

In a world torn apart by persecution, war and oppression, 3 children in Fatima, Portugal were chosen by God to offer an urgent message of hope to the world. Based on the memoirs of the oldest seer, Lucia Santos, and many thousands of independent eyewitness accounts, The 13th Day dramatizes the true story of three young shepherds who experienced six apparitions of Our Lady between May and October 1917, which culminated in the final prophesied Miracle of the Sun on October 13th. Abducted from their homes, thrown into prison and interrogated under the threat of death in the government's attempt to silence them, the children remained true to their story about the crucial messages from Mary of prayer, repentance and conversion for the world. Our Lady gave a secret to the children told in three parts, from a harrowing vision of hell, to prophetic warnings of future events including the advent and timing of the Second World War, the spread of communism, and the attempted assassination of the Pope.
