UPDATE: March 28th 2020
As you are aware, the COVID-19 is a pandemic requiring a big response from everyone to alleviate the spread of the virus. As a result ALL Generation Christ activities are being canceled until further notice! However, St. Thomas do offer below personal prayer, adoration and confession times for your spiritual growth:
1. Personal Prayer: The Parish Hall is open 7 days per week from 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. for personal prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. Note that these times are slightly different than our previous schedule. 2. Friday Adoration: Adoration will cease until further notice, though we are planning a weekly Friday Holy Hour available on FacebookInstagramYoutube, and our website. We are still solidifying when this will be, but we will let you know as soon as we do. 3. Confessions: Confessions will continue in the Parish Hall:
  • Monday 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
  • Wednesday through Saturday 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.
Please pray for all unceasingly and know of our prayers for all of you!
This is the generation of those who seek Him. -Psalm 24:6
