The Celtic cross, a common symbol of the English Church

Parish Life is rich and varied. Saint Thomas of Canterbury parish church offers a wonderful combination of things contemplative and active, spiritual and physical. There is many wholesome and constructive projects underway, programs and activities for families and singles of all ages to engage in.

Whether you are visiting us for the first time, or you are already a part of our growing parish family, know that …

. . . We sing.  Anglicans love to sing, regardless of how good (or mediocre!) we are. We learn as we sing. There is much valuable doctrine and good moral theology in our traditional hymns. Please join us in song.

. . . We read Scripture.  The Holy Bible is the inspired word of God. It is the basis for all that occurs in this building which is dedicated to the service of the Triune God (Father, Son, and Holy Ghost).

. . .We pray.  Prayer (speaking to God) is the foundation for everything we do as a church. Aside from praying at all worship services, we also pray at most church gatherings. Prayer is at the core of the strength of the parish of St Thomas of Canterbury. The greatest blessing comes when we realize the Lord answers the prayers of our church, family and friends.

. . .We receive Holy Communion.  We know this by several names:  Holy Communion, the Eucharist (which literally means “thanksgiving”), or the Mass. Whatever it is called, Holy Communion is the family meal of Christians, and a foretaste of the heavenly banquet. Moreover, it is the Holy Sacrifice memorializing Christ’s passion and death for our redemption. As Anglican Catholics, we believe in the Real Presence of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament of his Body and Blood.

Saint Thomas of Canterbury Anglican Church offers spiritual refreshment and enrichment for All men and women, and boys and girls, of Good Will. For those who have a desire to improve their lives and nourish their souls by growing in the Christian Faith delivered to the Saints, please visit us soon and often. Inquirers are strongly encouraged to speak with Father Fred. We would love to have you join us in prayer and thanksgiving.
