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.

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.

Missalette Dedication

We are replacing the JOURNEYSONG hymnals with an updated Missalette. Each Missalette is valued at $25.00, and you can fund as many Missalettes as you like. Your generosity and commitment to Saint Thomas Aquinas Parish is vital so we can continue to provide the wonderful music ministry. Please place your donation in an envelope clearly marked “New Missals” with your name, telephone number and the name of the person you wish to have inscribed in the Missalette. For those parishioners who already had a hymnal from last year memorialized, those names will be brought over to the new missalette. Any questions please call Mrs. Dawson 718-253-4404.

Prayer for His Holiness, Pope Francis

Holy Spirit, look with favor upon our new Holy Father, Pope Francis, as he begins his mission as Shepherd of the Universal Church.  May he be a holy servant, a strong leader, and a faith-filled guardian of the teachings of Jesus Christ. As the Vicar of Christ and successor of Saint Peter, may he be filled with zeal for the truth and may his heart be filled with deep compassion and love for the least ones among us. May he experience your peace and grace in abundance, as you pour forth upon him your spiritual gifts of wisdom, understanding, wonder and awe, counsel, knowledge, fortitude, and piety. O Beloved Holy Spirit, bless and watch over our new Pope, and be with him, and us, as we begin this new journey of faith together. We ask these things through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
