About Our Parish

Pastor's Message

Welcome to Saint Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic Parish! If you are learning about us for the first time, we hope you will join us soon for the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist.

We are blessed to have a vibrant community of faith. Our community of faith looks to Christ for the nourishment He provides through his Word and the Eucharist.

A parish is both a center of spiritual and communal life.  Our spiritual life is centered on the celebration of the Sacraments, particularly the Sunday Eucharist; our communal life is centered on ministries dedicated to charity, justice and culture.

Our Saint Vincent de Paul Society offers emergency assistance to families in need.  Though this assistance is limited, we hope it offers a measure of peace of mind until matters improve in the life of families in need.

Our parish is a member of the El Paso Interreligious Sponsoring Organization (EPISO).  Through community organizing strategies, we participate in the on-going resolution of issues related to education, wages, infrastructure, health care and immigration.  In this way, we work to implement the basic tenets of Catholic Social Teaching that are proclaimed in the gospel and the teachings of the Second Vatican Council.

For over 35 years, EPISO, supported by the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, has helped to improve the quality of life for thousands of families in El Paso County.

We see the manifestation of the Spirit in almost 300 hundred Lay Ministers who serve in the various Liturgical, Catechetical, and Service Ministries. 

If you need any information about our parish, please call us at 915-592-1313, ext. 101.

May God bless you!
