Welcome to Saint Thomas the Apostle
Orthodox Christian Church!
We are a Christ-centered church who loves to have visitors, and you are welcome to visit or join us for a service anytime! All services are conducted in English. While our church was founded by immigrants from Slovakia, Poland and Western Ukraine, today we are comprised of peoples of all ethnic backgrounds, most of whom are American converts to the ancient Orthodox Christian faith.
If you have questions or would like to visit when there isn't a service, please use the email contact form on the bottom of this page to contact our priest, Fr. Joseph Edgington.
A Word from the Holy Fathers
Knowing the commandments of the Lord, let this be our way of life: / Let us feed the hungry, let us give the thirsty drink, / let us clothe the naked, let us welcome strangers, / let us visit those in prison and the sick. / Then the Judge of all the earth will say even to us: / ‘Come, ye blessed of My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you.’
– (Vespers for Saturday evening – Sunday of the Last Judgment)

With the start of Great Lent 2020, our Diocese will also start a new ministry for families: SPF50.
Orthodox Christian families face many challenges. Engaging children with their faith both in church and at home and helping parents keep Christ as Head of their household present ongoing difficulties. Far too often, what is experienced at church on Sundays is not brought back into the home. When that disconnect remains, as youth leave home to begin a new life on their own, they will often leave the Church behind as well.
Follow this link to the Diocessan website for more information on how you and your family can participate in this campaign during Great Lent.
