Parish Mission Statement
We, the People of Saint Thomas Aquinas Parish, Flatlands, Brooklyn, are a multicultural community; invigorate to respond to the call of jesus under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Consistent with the tradition of the Catholic Church, we are:
- United in worshipping the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit by serving Him through serving one another.
- Devoted to unity within the Body of Christ, supporting and promoting one another to live the message of the Gospel through the celebration of the sacraments.
- Committed to a Church community that fosters evangelism, service, hospitality, stewardship and a need for genuine unity and belonging.
Church is Open
Our church is open every day for private prayer. Some folks pray quietly before the tabernacle; while others pray the Stations of the Cross or light a candle in the shrines to the Blessed Mother, Saint Joseph or Saint Thomas Aquinas. Others sit in the pews and meditate on scriptures or pray in some fashion. Feel free to stop in at any time, when the Church is open.
through Friday 6:00am to 2:00pm
