Prayer changes our heart. It helps us better understand our God. This is why it is important to speak with the Lord, not with empty words - Jesus says: 'As pagans do'. No, no, talk with [Him about] reality: ‘Look , Lord, I have this problem, in my family, with my child, with this, with that ... What can you do? You cannot leave me like this!' This is prayer! Does this prayer take a long time? Yes, it takes time.”

WORSHIP: The Intimate Encounter with Christ

Prayer Requests

St. Therese of Lisieux once said that "prayer is a cry of the heart" to the Lord who offers himself as a companion through every human suffering. As his Body, his Church, the St. Thomas parish community welcomes the requests of parishioners and friends, and pledges to join in attention and intercession.

You are welcome to submit your prayer requests to the priests and rectory staff by using the webform below.

Do let us know if there is anything else we can do to support you, your family or friends during a difficult time.

Prayer for Trust & Confidence

O Lord, we ask for a boundless confidence and trust in your Divine Mercy, and the courage to accept the crosses and sufferings, which bring immense goodness to our souls and that of your Church. Help us to love you with a pure and contrite heart, and to humble ourselves beneath your cross, as we climb the mountain of holiness, carrying our cross that leads to heavenly glory. May we receive you with great faith and love in Holy Communion, and allow you to act in us, as you desire, for your greater glory. O Jesus, most adorable heart and eternal fountain of Divine Love, may our prayer find favor before the Divine Majesty of your heavenly Father. Amen
-St. Pio of Pietrelcina (1887-1968)
