About St. Thomas Aquinas

  • Welcome to St. Thomas Aquinas Parish! Our parish is one of the largest and most active parishes in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, a parish that is committed to serving you in your growth in holiness and daily following of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Our goal as a parish is very simple:

    that all things may be done for the greater glory of God and the salvation of souls. The reverent worship of God in the Liturgy is top priority in our parish. In many different ways, especially through our Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration, we encourage the personal sanctification of our parishioners. By serious and thoughtful preaching of the Word of God, and by a preschool through adult religious education program, we deepen our knowledge of the Gospel. Our many other parish ministries serve our parishioners in the various needs of their lives with the love of Jesus Christ.

    Pray about getting involved with the work of the parish. What has made this such a great parish is that thousands of people like you have found great fulfillment and growth in holiness from serving in ministry.

    Once again, welcome to the parish We are here to help you get closer to God!

    Yours in Christ,

    Monsignor Douglas Raun
