Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish,

He is Risen, Alleluia! Easter is celebrated for fifty glorious days beginning today culminating on the Solemnity of Pentecost. This is the “mother of all feasts” because we remember that great love of the Father for us, whose Son, Jesus Christ, by dying destroyed death and by rising restored all of us to life. This is the feast of the Passover of the Lord, the new day; the new creation, the new life, the eighth day. Easter reminds us that we have been reconciled with God the Father.
