Saint Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church of Fort Worth is a Catholic parish that occupies a large place in the hearts of those who consider it their home. Generous service to others, a strong emphasis on prayer, and the enjoyment of community have been the hallmarks of St.Thomas of Fort Worth. In response to Jesus’ call, parishioners express love for one another as catechists, liturgical ministers, visitors to the sick, and organizers of funeral receptions. They deepen their faith through participation in shared scripture study. And they enthusiastically join together to celebrate events such as the Lunar New Year, the Fourth of July, and other Parish Feasts, giving everyone a sense of belonging and the opportunity to have a good time and contribute to our wonderful community. Today, Saint Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church is the “Body of Christ” with over 1200 families. We pray and worship together, work together and enjoy the Feast at the Lord’s Table as one family. We also gather throughout the year to enjoy a meal of fellowship.
…you are no longer aliens or foreign visitors: you are citizens like all the saints, and part of God's household. You are part of a building that has the apostles and prophets for its foundations, and Christ Jesus himself for its main cornerstone.— Ephesians 2:19–20
The month of November is dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatorythose faithful Christians who have died and gone before us but who still must atone for their sins. The time they spend in Purgatory cleanses them so that they may enter Heaven free from all effects of sin.
