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

...He who was born according to the flesh is God from the Father, and man from me. O awesome and wondrous mystery! Who ever saw a king take on the appearance of a condemned man? Or when did the eye ever take in the sight of the entire sun? And when was human flesh ever essentially united without change to God, if not yesterday?...

Passage taken from 12/26/21 Sobornost 

-St. Proclus, Archbishop of Constantinople, On the Incarnation of Our Lord

SPF 50 - Scripture Prayer Family

Updated for July 7, 2021!!!

Earlier, our Diocese started a new ministry for families: SPF50.

Thank you to all our families who have participated in the SPF50 Ministry. Together we have completed 6 of the SPF50 publications!!

The Seventh edition of SPF50 is now available. The reading schedule begins on July 7, 2021.

We are excited to continue the NEW reading program in the sixth edition!! The NEW reading program highlights many ESSENTIAL Biblical Stories like Creation, Noah and the Ark, the Exodus, the call of the Prophet Samuel, and many others throughout the Old and New Testaments.

If you haven’t joined SPF50 yet, now is a great time to start! Make a commitment to reading Scripture and praying together with your family. Even the busiest of families can make a commitment to read from the Bible and pray together for 50 minutes a month. Don’t forget to fill out the Commitment Card which is available in the SPF50 Section of the Diocesan Website, and then return the Card to your parish priest.

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.

We encourage you to be a part of the SPF50 Ministry.  If you missed the first few Issues of reading Scripture and Praying together as a family, you can join now. This Ministry is meant to be ongoing as Scripture reading and praying together as a family are meant to be an ongoing part of your family’s life in Christ.
