“One expression of this attitude [of Jesus] is when we stop and give thanks to God before and after meals. I ask all believers to return to this beautiful and meaningful custom. That moment of blessing, however brief, reminds us of our dependence on God for life; it strengthens our feeling of gratitude for the gifts of creation; it acknowledges those who by their labours provide us with these goods; and it reaffirms our solidarity with those in greatest need.”
Pope Francis
Laudato Si', #227

COMMUNITY: Living His Communion Together


The life of communion lived together at St. Thomas offers each parishioner an experience of the Lord's hospitality of the heart.

Coffee Hour: We share our lives together with coffee and conversation after the 8:30AM and 10:30AM Masses on Sunday. Can you assist one Sunday a month, or be a subsitute as needed? Contact Greg Chronister, gchron@epe.org or 202-362-9451.
