Dear Members and Friends of Saint Thomas,
With thanksgiving to our merciful God, and through your generosity, we have been able to move into the new Saint Thomas the Apostle Church, and many furnishings have already been purchased and installed.

One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple. (Ps. 27:4)
