The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of the most unique and beautiful aspects of Catholic Church. Our Lord Jesus Christ, in His abundant love and mercy, established this Sacrament of Healing so that we as fallible human beings can obtain forgiveness  and be reconciled to the Father and the Church. This precious gift from Christ “washes us clean,” and renews us in Him. Take a step in faith, you may be surprised about how free and loved you feel afterwards.
St Thomas the Apostle:  Each Saturday from 9:30am to 10:00am
Sacred Heart: Each Friday from 9:45am to 10:15am, immediately after morning Mass.

Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament:

If you are in need of a little "me time" and want an opportunity to meditate and contemplate with Our Lord the Eucharistic Chapel at St. Thomas is available for you at all times. If you would like to gain access to the Chapel please feel fee to see the Priest after Mass or contact our Parish Office.

Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God and are made members of the Church and sharers in its mission. Baptisms are available on the 4th Sunday of each Month commencing at 12:00pm sharp. You will first meet with the friendly Baptismal Preparation Group who will welcome you into the Parish and explain all aspects of the Sacrament. This meeting is held on either the 1st or 2nd Tuesday of the month in the Church at 7:00pm sharp. The Right of Welcome occurs at Mass on either the Saturday or Sunday immediately following the Preparation Meeting where all the Baptism families will be warmly welcomed into our Parish Community.
